Is this a Livingston radiator?

Nice photo stolen from the Automobile Sept issue. Any ideas on the source of the radiator? RHD English registration

Not like any I’ve seen. Very smooth curves and the ones available now aren’t like that. Really nice!

The Thompson Bennett cars had radiators of similar shape. I have no pictures of same for reference.

I got the Bennett part right, but it is Newton Bennett. If you giggle it, there are photos of some cars on different sites.

great stuff Allan! Certainly looks like they stole the rad off a Newton Bennett.

Just seen that the Automobile did a Newton Bennet article in 2008, they say there are 5 survivors, so they will have photos in their own archive.

There is one in the National Motor Museum in Birdwood, just 30 odd miles from me. I knew I' seen one somewhere!
