NOS CHALMERS RADIATOR SHELL

Recommended Posts

I believe that I have a NOS Chalmers radiator shell.

It is stored about 800 miles away, so I can't photograph it for you. I might get my son to do it.

This is now at my home in Florida and is for sale at only $125.00.

It is black with aluminum piping around the inside of the front opening.

I'm thinking mid 20s. I also got a NOS top bow with it.

Thank you,

This is a 1922 Chalmers. Does the shell look like this one?

Yes it does ! The inside of the radiator opening has that aluminum piping, just like your photo.

Unfortinately, it is 800 miles away, in West Virginia, at the moment.

Thank you,

Mike,

Chalmers added that "Aluminum Piping", to the radiator shell, the last two years of production, 1922 and 1923, with minor differences. When You post your photo, I'll identify the year of Your radiator shell.

Thank you. On my next trip to West Virginia, I will bring the shell back and photograph it.

It needs a good home. I have had it hanging for about fifty years.

Perhaps, It will fit both years, but, only technically correct, for the one year.

Thanks again,

I, finally, got hold of my NOS Chalmers Radiator and photographed it.

What year is it ?

Thank you,

Mike,

Your radiator shell is for a 1923 Chalmers. For 1922, Chalmers located the crank hole in the center of the lower portion of the radiator shell. Not at bottom, as shown in your photo. Let me know if you need further proof.

I will take your word for it. You seem to know what you are talking about !

You don't know of anyone, who would like to have this, do you ?

Thank you very much !
