The Penrose V Radiator born of a customer's design request for "Livingston V like" radiator for his 1924-1927 Model T. We sought design inspiration in the ancients and applied the golden ratio to create an all new v shaped construction for the 1917-1927 Model Ts. This alternative design could also be used for the brass era model t hood shape.
We christened it the Penrose V to pay homage to the Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd who created the Penrose Tribar optical illusion in 1934. The good news is that we designed it. The bad news is that our customer abandoned his project and the radiator was never constructed. Now we need someone else to commission it and bring it to life.
It fits a standard Model T frames and the hood step follows the same contour of the hood placement on for the model t production year to which it has been paired.
