I bought my first Berg Radiator and was impressed from the moment I opened the box...had to let it sit around a while and admire it.

Had a chance to mount it today...impressed myself all over again!

Were Gery to have made radiators for Ford, they could have saved the cost of the shroud on about 14 million :-)

Looks so nice you just don't want to cover it up!
You better, though.
The hood will wear a hole in the top tank if you don't.
Of course, I suppose you could leave the hood off also?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I will probably never need one, but I sure hope that the info that Berg's are not going to be building the brass radiators is premature. Looks to me to be a great time to cash in on a good market. JMHO. Dave

It will work as great as it looks too. I just got back from Canyonlands 4 plus Arches plus Yellowstone, never had to add a drop and never overheated. Couldn't ask for a better performing (or looking) radiator.

OK, so a PM asked me what is in the background. Well....clutter and lots of it! :-)

Under the car cover is a '15 Roadster. It sits on those 4-wheeled 'skate' plates due to storage limitations. Is easy enough to get out...back the Hack out, one hand pull on the '15 comes over in the bay...high lift hydraulic jack with about 3 pumps and each skate comes out. Putting away, same way. Adds about 15 minutes on each end.

Yes, that is an original unmolested '25 Fordor body tub to the right. It's not resting on the floor to 'rot' (Thanks for the advice tho'), it sits level on wooden skids under and across the body rails...the rest of that car is in the attic over the missus laundry room and powder room area, but I don't tell her just how much is stored up there and she never checks :-) The storage area over those rooms has a hayloft door access from the garage side...and there is a winch in the ceiling just outside the hayloft style access...so...good hiding places when you don't have room for everything :-)
