high radiator shell

Post by sweet23 » Wed Nov 06, 2019 6:37 pm

When was the change made in the radiator shell for the hood lace. I have two high radiator shells, both painted steel. One has round holes, the other has square holes to run the hood lace through. I am wondering which one is correct for a 1925.

Darryl, I'm not sure they didn't run concurrently. Perhaps they were from different suppliers. The majority of our Canadian sourced cars had the squared holes.

I believe I read somewhere that the round hole shells were on the "Improved" Ford.
