Regular price $695.00

This radiator is intended as a drop in replacement for the 1930-1931 Ford car or car based pick-up truck and set-up for the OE engine in its production year.  It has been called the "show radiator" because it has a hand dimpled core face and 6 fins per vertical inch.  The highly elliptical tube shape provide equal volumetric throughput but increase surface area by 293% thus requiring fewer tubes and still providing greater 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.

Please note that we offer higher fin density, lower fin density, pressurized and street rod radiators that all fit Model As in the bespoke radiator section

Additionally, 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.  We can use your tanks and hand scallop the fins to accommodate your embossed sidewalls.

Features of the 1930 and 1931 Model A radiators include:

  • Copper core design with 6 fins per inch
  • Hand dimpled fin face to mimic OE appearance
  • Embossed louvers between tubes to disrupt air flow & facilitate heat exchange
  • 3/4" seamless weld tubes in a staggered array to disrupt airflow laterally
  • Brass top tanks with model production year die stampings
  • Galvanized steel sidewalls to resist rust
  • Brackets riveted to the sidewall
  • Sidewalls available with relief like OE (upon request) 
  • Cowl rod bracket for support rods to firewall
  • Baffle in top tank to prevent coolant loss
  • Correct angle on lower outlet to clear power house generators
  • Electric wire tabs soldered to lower tank
  • Painted flat black to aid in heat exchange

Made in the USA

Use of aftermarket stay rods (often in chrome or stainless) will cause your radiator to tilt forward and result in hood-to-shell separation.
