I have a lower radiator mounting thimble (perhaps original???)that looks like it was a deep draw part. It was installed in an improved 1926/1927 roadster. In other words is does not have "lines" in the vertical portion or in the flange portion of the part. I have looked in some Ford parts books and have seen "lines" in the lower flange of the lower mounting thimble. Current reproductions I have seen have "Lines" in both the vertical part and the flange.
My question is, did Ford ever use "deep draw" lower radiator mounting thimbles in production?
