It would be worth something if you could actually identify the correct vehicle for it.

There is a lot of stuff like this that is "so rare it has very little value". If it fits something that there are only a couple dozen of, and none of the owners needs a radiator, you would have to just about give it away to move it.

If its similar in size to Model T & A radiators, its worth $35 at the scrap yard and that is where it is very likely to end up after years of trying to sell it and/or decades of storing it!

It appears to be similar to the radiator on a Model, N, R, or S Ford. Too dark in the photo to see if there is a Ford script wing mustache at the top tank. What other cars had a water pump located like the Model N?

Adam, excellent point.

I found a Rickenbacker headlight lens in a Model A headlight bucket, and there are only 30 or so cars known to exist today. I listed it for sale and I had interest from one guy who wanted it as a spare. He pointed out just what you said, that all of them already had headlight lenses so the value is very low.

The guy that has this radiator for sale is just a turn and churner. He buys and sells or at least tries to sell mostly at inflated prices. He lists over and over on Ebay and other venues. He has a couple of listings on ebay now one he calls early brass era car which is questionable to it's parentage.

just sayin'
