No such thing, unless you buy a new one from a hot rod parts supplier or have one plated.The later Ford shells were either painted or nickle-plated steel or nickle plate over brass. The chrome repo shells may not be designed to fit a stock T radiator.

Kinda hoping someone took off a car they bought because they dis not like the " wrong" chrome. Not for me a friend.

A chrome shell might match a modern set of stainless bumper bars better than nickle.

I have a chrome plated (over brass) shell on my speedster that needs a bit of repair. I'd be willing to trade for a high steel shell, either plated or black that is solid. I can take a photo if you are interested.

I'll admit they don't grow on trees, and one in good shape, even if it needs plating are hard to find, but I wouldn't say,"No such thing". I watch Ebay and Facebook Market place for hard to find items. Right now there is a good original on Ebay, if you're willing to pay the seller asking price, and somewhere, recently, I saw a nice Canadian nickled shell, if country of origin doesn't matter. I have only one extra right now and I promised it to a friend, but within the last 5 years, I have bought 2 off of Ebay. As Pat mentioned above, if the 'friend' who is seeking this shell, wants it for a hotrod, he might be better off buying a repro hot rod shell, because there seems to have been discussion on the internet about repro shells not having the filler hole in the right place for original radiators, and visa versa.
