D30-31FT 6&11 FPI - Janus Edition

Regular price $1,144.00

When our customer Mr. Hansen requested a dual core for his model A e.g. dimpled 6 fin per inch face with a 11 fin per inch on the engine we all said "oooooh, now there's a twist. " So it will look stock in front and maximize the cooling on the back. We named it for the Roman God, Janus, for the future of engineering design and the reflective past of historic design.

Its still a drop in replacement for the 1930-1931 Ford car or car based pick-up truck and set-up for the OE engine in its production year. 

The highly elliptical tube shape provide equal volumetric throughput but increase surface area by 293% thus requiring fewer tubes and still providing greater heat exchange.  Other features include a deep drawn tank with an OE stamp pattern, electric wire tabs, galvanized steel sidewalls, and riveted brackets for a longer life.

Features of the 1930 and 1931 Model A radiators include:

  • Copper core design with 6 fins per inch front and 11 FPI back 
  • Hand dimpled fin face to mimic OE appearance
  • Embossed louvers between tubes to disrupt air flow & facilitate heat exchange
  • 3/4" seamless weld tubes in a staggered array to disrupt airflow laterally
  • Brass top tanks with model production year die stampings
  • Galvanized steel sidewalls to resist rust
  • Brackets riveted to the sidewall
  • Sidewalls available with relief like OE (upon request) 
  • Cowl rod bracket for support rods to firewall
  • Baffle in top tank to prevent coolant loss
  • Correct angle on lower outlet 
  • Electric wire tabs soldered to lower tank
  • Painted flat black to aid in heat exchange

Made in the USA

Use of aftermarket stay rods (often in chrome or stainless) will cause your radiator to tilt forward and result in hood-to-shell separation.
