In a restoration we use all re-useable parts from your original radiator (from whichever of the four factories Ford sourced from) and our new core. They take 10-13 hours on average + core construction time.
round tube core with faux seam tubes
Seamed on tubes are positioned randomly to mimic OE placement
6 copper fin per inch
hand sheared fins with the scallop to correspond to the sidewall relief
original top and bottom tank
flat rivets in the OE stay rod bracket for the production year
return lock fold header
electric wire tabs soldered to lower tank
hood hinge holder
test fit to shell when provided (or we use our OE shells)
Made in the USA
We make to order. Please allow adequate time for us to build.
