Radiator, possibly British '30s-'50s?

Recommended Posts

Looks 1930s to '50s, possibly foreign as most of the cars at the shop where this was found were British and Italian. E.G. Armstrong-Siddeley, Bristol, Morgan, Lancia, Jaguar and BSA. 

 

No identifying marks or tags, just an unusual filler baffle. Core is 24-1/2" x 17" wide. Any guesses? .

 

Thank you.

 

Hank

Difficult to say. It does not help that parts are missing. The side straps are gone with any information about mounting they might provide as well as the filler neck. Any chance it is the original from the BSA and someone has fitted a replacement using some of the parts off this one to make it fit ?

In that case it may be something that the BSA's owner picked up along the way to provide a reasonably correct replacement core should the cars original need replacement. New, original style cores can cost a fortune but a larger  "correct" style used core can sometimes be modified and used for a cost reduced repair.

By the shape of the missing filler fitting one could suggest early 1930 s chev radiator , from 1928 the to fitting was this half circle shape on the to tank , made by Harrison Radiator for GM  , possible  Bob

There is no Harrison (or any other) tag. It is a honey comb so GM makes sense. Next time I see a '28 Chev, :), I'll take out my tape measure. Thanks for help.

Isn't there one being restored at the moment with a topic in "Our Cars and Restorations" forum? Maybe they own a tape measure...
