Description

Here's a vintage radiator that looks to me to be for the Standard range of cars of around the 1924 to 1927 period, so the Standard 9, 11, 13.9hp etc. All the various features point to that anyway. Built by Coventry Motor Fittings Co Ltd, with a manufacturers number E 4502. Missing the screw-on cap, and the enamel badge, but otherwise complete. Very good tanks, and good sound outlet and inlet pipes, overflow tube, and drain bung. The core is good for it's age, but the finning around a couple of the inner tubes has been squashed a little bit (see photo), and there's other general bangs & bends as you'd expect, but it looks reasonably superficial. The damage at the back looks to perhaps have been done by other parts being stacked on top of this in storage. I'd be quietly confident that it'd be watertight, but who knows? I haven't put water in this or pressure tested it though, so it is sold as it is. The soldering where the tubes meet the tanks at the top, bottom, and across the centre rear seam all looks good to me. It's an old original radiator so I'd count on having to do some repairs of some sort, and if you don't then that's a bonus. A very rare radiator at a good price. Pick up from Thames, or I'm happy to pallet & Mainfreight.

Sell for cash, or in lieu of cash I'm happy to swap for parts for 1930 Pontiac, or 1941 Indian Scout.

If you live in Hamilton or Auckland, and are not in a particular rush to get this then I can bring it up and meet you at some stage, as we have a daughter flatting in Chartwell, and another in Grey Lynn. We come up every month or two.
