Ether someone did a fantastic restoration on it or it's a more modern reproduction. If it is a repo, I wonder if that little brass button next to the data plate is the year, 1967.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :roll:

Beautiful speedster you have! And that 'V' radiator looks terrific too.

Original Livingston's normally exhibit the tapered front tank and normally an oval emblem on the face of that tank.

They had a couple of tags on the early ones.

Rueben, your radiator has to be the most attractive aftermarket radiator I have seen. The lines are reminiscent of those on early Benz cars. The rounded top corners really make it a pleasing design.

I suggest that your radiator is teens but the shell is modern.
Mine needs a new shell. Oval spot is where the tag was soldered on.

Bruce,
Don't be shy. Make an offer on the radiator and it might yours!
Anyone else interested can also contact me.
