28-29FT 11 FPI EXTREME TOURING with Pressure
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." Then a customer called and said, "can I get that with pressure?". You bet!
This radiator is intended as a drop in replacement for the 1928 and 1929 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.
Features of the 1928 and 1929 Model A and Model AA radiators include:
Our 1928 and 1929 Model A and Model AA truck reproductions are aftermarket products. The design is based upon original drawings provided by Ford and original radiators we have collected over the last 45 years. Each radiator is tested with an original Ford shell to assure general fit, appropriate neck placement and accurate mounting bracket placement. Each 1928-1929 radiator is also tested with an original 1928 steel fan shroud to assure fitment. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the fit, finish, design or craftmanship the radiator may be returned to us postage pre-paid in new and re-saleable condition for a refund.
For a little more money, you may also consider our 28-29RT with round tubes for more authentic look.
