I would have the original radiator recored,the only problem that I had was the steel mounting strap under the radiator bottom tank was not flush and it would not mount correctly,I brought it back to the shop and they fixed it.

I bought one from Snyder's last year I didn't tell them what I wanted what I did tell them was to send me the best radiator they had. It fit like a glove and cools the old model A like a champ. These vendors know what they have and if you can't trust them don't do business with

I got Bratton's heavy duty radiator for my 28 Tudor a few months ago. Fits like a glove, cools great. Solved my overheating problem and looks good.

I just replaced my old leaky radiator last weekend. I got a Berg's radiator based on a search of posts from this site which all seemed to have good things to say about Berg's. It fits perfect and appears to be really well-constructed!

My 1930 Radiator, on the car I purchased just was beyond use. The car had been a cosmetic showroom vehicle and not really used. I did some looking around, and found a fellow on ebay, which can be kind of scary, but, I took a chance and bought a radiator from him. He is in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Installation of a replacement showed up a difference in the top neck length but other than that a perfect fit, and no more overheating. It has 9 fins per inch flat fin style, and has three rows of about 100 tubes ( a bit more than the one I took off)
Here is the title on ebay! His feedback is 100% Brand NEW Ford Model A Radiator HEAVY DUTY 1930 1931 Aftermarket BRASS & COPPER

Just fitted a 10 fin radiator from Snyders - took a minimum amount of fitting and works great. Car runs cool even in the 95 degree Texas heat. Don't forget to add an outlet filter!

The Brassworks site still shows they have Model A & AA reproduction radiators.. I see that multiple posters say they’ve removed from their website, but they’re listed.

Does anyone recommend any of the radiators from Snyder’s? I see that Bratton’s, Model A Medic, and Bert’s all sell the Brassworks radiators.

I spoke with Snyders and Bergs yesterday. Snyders are made by Independent Radiator Co.

Bergs wait time is at least 4 weeks. Bergs are $200 more than Snyder.
