Re: 41 radiator, original vs brassworks

The radiator pictured is the older design. We began fabricating the top tanks to the OE geometry rather than use the common shorter drawn tank. Some radiators are well hidden but not the 39 Dlx,...

Re: Latest word on Brassworks

The tabs are not present in the Ford prints. When we see this we base the dimension and placement on the OEM radiators we have. If they are too tight they can be opened with pliers.

Re: Who makes an original looking 29 tube radiator

The round tubes cores are still being made. If you want to restore the radiator using all your parts this is a service that is available.

Re: Think it will fit in a '39 pickup?

Sounds like you bought heater core material. If that is what you wanted in a Packard then yes, it would have been far cheaper to do that.
