I have a 1926 Tudor. Nickel plated radiators were an option that year but I need to know were the shells brass for the nickel plated ones or were they steel? I know that the painted ones were steel. The reason I ask is mine is nickel plated steel which is rusting and I am wondering if it is correct. Thanks, Tom

The closed cars in 26-27 all had a nickel plated brass shell and this is not an option. The open cars could be either a nickel plated brass shell or a painted steel shell.

Ford did not supply a plated steel shell or a closed car with a painted steel shell unless there is a non-starter equipped variance that I am not aware of.
