1917-1923.5 Amesbilt Cloverleaf Model T Speedster Radiator


Regular price

The Amesbilt speedster bodies like The Wasp, The 814 Racer and The Cloverleaf were  aftermarket bodies designed for the Model T frame.  The Cloverleaf used a 1916-1918 Maxwell Model 25 shell with holes drilled/punched to mimic a Lawco - Opesco Bullnose shell. Lawco-Opescos used square pattern core, had a visible break  or seam on the top-to-V, punched holes and larger neck with domed bakelite caps

Of you have a Maxwell shell we can make a slightly modified Model T to fit or we can create a shell to mimic the appearance.

It will fit a standard Model T frame from 1917-1923 (or 1924-1927) and the hood step follows the same contour of the hood placement on for the Model T's production year to which it has been paired.  This may be made as a flared cartridge, a film core, a tube and or fin or tube and fin behind a honeycombe fascia.
