30-31FT 11FPI EXTREME TOURING
Did we need to make a radiator with even more copper? Probably not but we did it anyway. It needed a name and though we like the "I-never-want-to-worry-about-overheating-again" radiator we settled on "Extreme Touring."
This radiator is intended as a drop in replacement for the 1930 and 1931 Ford car or car based pick-up truck and set-up for the OE engine in its production year. It has essentially the same "high efficiency" radiator or "modern" core design as our popular HI Efficiency core but we add even more copper. From 6FPI to 11FPI equates to an 83.3% increase in copper fin. The highly elliptical tube shape provides equal volumetric throughput but increases tube surface area by 293% thus requiring fewer tubes and still achieving better 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.
If you have modified or altered your vehicle in anyway, please order from the bespoke radiator section. If you wish to restore your OE radiator using your OE tanks, brackets and/or castings please visit the restoration section of our website to begin the process.
Features of the 1930 and 1931 Model A Extreme Touring radiators include:
Made in the USA (and made with 99.99% North American sourced materials!)
Use of aftermarket stay rods (often in chrome or stainless) will cause your radiator to tilt forward and result in hood-to-shell separation.
We make to order. Please allow adequate time for us to build.
