early 17 "T" Radiator with shroud
Rare as Hen's Teeth early 1917 Ford Radiator
This radiator is intended as a drop in replacement for the early 1917 Ford Model T which was equipped with a fan shroud. It is dimensionally the same as a "low style" core but it is unique in that there are no sidewalls and the shroud is affixed with three angled brackets. It is set-up for the OE engine in its production year. There are core options available based on usage and budget.
Images of this radiator sometimes show an alternative upper casting shape e.g. "pointy". We can use the common one, use yours, have a one-off casting replica made from yours or 3D print a replacement to be cast.
OE caps were die stamped with roll formed threads. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the fitment of 100 year old caps. Aftermarket caps are test fit and available for purchase.
Some Images reflect past builds to assist with visualization of modifications e.g. polished brass, 6v fans etc
