1910-1911 Mitchell "T" or "R" radiator wanted

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a good example. I have a poor one that may actually work but doesn't look very good. The Mitchell T and R (both 4-cylinder cars) used the same radiator. It does not have a decorative brass shell. The outer shell was a separate piece and I don't have that either. Height is about 25-1/2", width 25", total thickness about 2-3/4 inches. Since is sits in a cross member, I don't have a lot of wiggle room on the thickness. I'll post a photo tomorrow but it's a very conventional "Mercedes" shape as seen on many cars. The only slightly unusual feature is that the bottom corners are clipped. I'm not fussy about this... it doesn't actually have to be from a Mitchell. It just has to look the part.

Here are some photos of the radiator I have. It looks better in the pictures than in real life but you can see where the fins damaged in the back.
