Low style flat tube from Mac's, part number 16-55343-1. Be interested in knowing how it performs and what the quality is like. Doesn't appear to be a Berg's or Brassworks..

Think they’re made by Independent Antique Radiator in IL. Not positive, but Mac’s is listed on their website as s distributor.

Tim

I have one of these so-called 'inexpensive' versions on the '23.

Should have paid a bit more for a Brassworks.

Here is older post on this radiator and my comparison.

Guess it is not Independent- their website does not show any T radiators; only A.

Has anyone thought about or tried to convert one of the $200 v8 aluminum radiators by moving the inlets and outlets to fit our little 4 cyl??

Saw one about a year ago... Stand that radiator up on its top tank and poke the top tank and it will jiggle like jello! I bet it won’t last 900 miles before it leaks!

Scott - you are right, I missed it in the text section. They make T high radiators.
