F/S 1900-04 Brass French Radiator. AMAZING! See photos

Recommended Posts

Up for sale for $2,800 is a rare piece worldwide, and especially located in the USA! This Radiator from the 1899, 1900, 1901, 1902, 1903, 1904 period was made in France. The brass title says: " REFROID R Cloisonne G.A Rtesgdg PARIS." I did a Google search on this name and nothing came up. At the turn of the century virtually every automobile car company in France, England, UK and the United States bought their radiators from outside parts house sources, rather than making them. Thus this radiator is historically correct for any Veteran car that is used on the London to Brighton Run, put on by the VCCGB. It is quite large at 27 1/2 inches wide, 14 1/2 inches high, with a 3-inch metal band around the entire radiator. The hole in the center for the crank handle to go through is 1 1/4 inches in diameter. It weighs approx. 40 pounds. It would be correct for any large one cylinder, or two, or four cylinder vehicle. It appears to be excellent overall, with older leakage only evident around the plug at one corner, that needs to be resoldered. I assume the tubing is copper. Dry humidity inside storage for many decades. Autocar, Peerless, Pope, CVG and Pierce Arrow used a similar radiator on their multi cylinder models in 1903,1904,1905. So did De Dion Bouton, Dedion, Panhard Levassor, Darracq, MMC, Mercedes Benz, Renault, and many makes from England and France during the 1900-04 period. This would be a killer radiator for an early race, racer, speedster, racing car as well! It mounts under the frame in front of the car. Will pack and ship in the USA and overseas for actual costs.
