    CCR's Chromed Steel T Radiator shells arrived yesterday. The shells look great and will be a welcomed re-addition to CCR's product line. They fit the 1923-25 radiator and include the lower tank cover, which really finishes off the front of your car. They are available now and are ready to ship.
    CCR's Part # 81613 TBF (chromed steel) $225.

    Yes, they will fit any car with an (inside) frame width of no less than 19" (any less would require trimming of the lower cover) using a 1923-25 ford style radiator.

    I hate to be a bother. I have a Speedway radiator and need to know if it will fit. The top and sides should, but I need the distance from the inside front to the neck hole. I'm not sure the Speedway neck is in the right spot for your shell.

    Could you please measure for me?

    Yes, I will try to get that for you tomorrow. Is the radiator the Afco aluminum or the copper brass Radiator? I dont think the aluminum one had a neck? is there a brand name on your radiator?

    Yes, that helped. Unfortunately, Speedways neck is 1" from the front. :mad: Oh, well. This radiator is also sold polished, so I may get someone to polish it one day. (should've got thepolished one to begin with)

    Thanks for the help.

    Can't see why that wouldn't fit Fred unless I'm seeing it wrong.

    Yea, after thinking, looking and measuring, it should work. I'll have a 1/4" gap in the front, but that's not bad at all. I'll let the tax man pay for it when I get his check.:)

    Your car looks great, Did you attach the neck to the shell or the radiator?

    Thanks,,,I attached it to the shell ,, I made a small bed of kitty hair to set it solid and I fitted a large washer inside the neck with 2 long screws to the bottom into a cross piece under the neck that pulls both pieces together. It made it darn tight and I think short of hitting a bird at speed it should stay .
