A lot of guys are putting a '26/7 body onto a running driving Model A chassis. they fit fairly well, with one exception, the radiator/grille shell. The model A cowl is taller at the firewall than a T, and correspondingly so is the radiator/grille. I'm a firm believer that whatever grille you use, the top of it should be about 1 1/2" lower than the cowl. This means the hood top slopes down toward the grille. The simple answer would seem to be to lower the radiator/grille. Not so fast. Can't lower the radiator without lowering the front crossmember. No one wants that as it would raise the front of the car up. Next answer would seem to be shorten the radiator. If the radiator is shortened to fit the sectioned/lowered grille shell, the fan blades will slice the top hose. So you guys who are smarter than me, what have you done? I want to use a '26 grille shell with a '26 roadster on a Model A frame with its banger engine. What's the fix? Cheers, Stewart.
