30-31 Vern Tardel
Vern Tardel of Santa Rosa designed an iconic combination of V8 Flatheads and early Fords Model As that graced the salt flats of Bonneville and race tracks of southern California in the fifties. We are not affiliated with Vern's business but get calls to make radiators to suit specific builds with angled lower hoses and fan well reliefs so you don't have to grind your fan like Vern tells you.
Product images reflect past builds and serve to illustrate various elements of design. The radiator you order will be constructed based on the information you provide for your bespoke build.
