Has anyone heard of either of the radiator manufacturers no longer making them for Ts?

Best way way to find out if a supplier is still in business is to call them. They have their contact listed.

I ordered a new Brassworks radiator three weeks ago and it showed up last week. I got mine from Langs.

The only thing that might add any credence to this is, Berg's stopped making the new brass era radiators a few years ago, as I recall.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:

The brass one must be special order as they do not list anything before 1917 on the web site.

Gery made some brass radiators briefly a few years ago but soon gave it up. I don't know if they were ever on his website. I believe Brassworks is the only current source for new brass radiators.

At the Model T Museum the only brass era car I saw with an original radiator was the 1907 Model R. All the others have new ones which I assume are Brassworks. At the OCF last year I saw two brass era Fords with original radiators, mine and one other. It's becoming increasingly rare to see an original on a car.
