Hi. Brian here again. I got no response on my 1934 CU radiator so i placed it on Ebay for auction. I'm a little surprised at the lack of response from Airflow owners. I know that when "I" have an old rare car i try to accumulate spare parts whenever i can......especially if they are not being reproduced. Good luck finding the parts when that soccer mom in a hurry to get to work t-bones you, or that deer jumps out in front of your car. Another bit of food for thought, is.....the local scrap yard is paying $1.95 per pound for copper radiators, of which this one is about 60 Lbs. Which means that the scrap value alone is $117.00 Knowing that.......what do you think the guy you have to pay to re-core yours is going to charge? Last i checked A Ford model A repro copper radiator is about $500.00 Sooooo....... i would expect if you can get the radiator guy to re-do yours, it will run about $800.00 minimum. Now don't get too riled up, i'm just trying to get you guys to think this through, i have no intention of scrapping this radiator. I'm an old car guy and could never do that (maybe if i was bankrupt,had no home, and was starving to death). My reserve is less than scrap value. Lets get off our hands(wallets), and give this thing a home. Regards.
