My 24, high-cowl car came with a low radiator. Now that the restoration is underway, I'd like to part with it. I had it re-cored by a knowledgeable guy that my grandad had been using since the 60s, so I trust the quality of the repair. Top and bottom tanks are in excellent condition. It was fitted with a new inlet from brassworks and a modern, flat-tube core. Absolutely no weeps or leaks and it cools great. Two things to note though: the nickel plating is long gone from the neck and cap and the new core does not have the internal support bar. Asking $450, shipping included.

Reduced price. $350, shipping included. Or I can deliver it to the national tour in Cranberry in July.

Jim, I hesitate to make this observation, but it may forestall some embarrassment for you and some dissatisfaction from a buyer.

It would appear that it has been rebuilt using a tall radiator top outlet. The low radiator outlet is much shallower.

If the core is a low one, the tall radiator outlet will not line up with the cast iron fitting on the cylinder head.

I could be wrong.

Allan, I think you're correct. However, it fit just fine by shortening the top hose.

This is spoken for, pending payment.
