What grill shell is this and what radiator will work for me keeping in mind this is a budget hot rod
Odd shape emblem...Rickenbocker?? That's spelled Rong!
Edit...Rickenbacker is right, or at least better.
I have no idea kind of wanting to put it on that ccr frame though
I was looking at pictures I think the rickenbocker was more square
the shape of the radiator will depend on the positioning of the shell, its mounting, fan clearance, etc, etc. Better to get the final engine position settled and the grill shell positioned before selecting a radiator. That said, a typical starting point is the first gen Mustang.
Your grill shell is from a 1928 Pontiac. They had a double coin emblem.
Yeah,1928 Pontiac. HRP
Rickenbacker is correct (I checked)
here is a page with some to look at I think I saw at least one with that rad shell.
If we had the dims we could better tell what would fit and be cheap(ish)
18 x 24 x 4 I know it's gonna be "modified" ...I was thinking of visiting the tractor junk yard for the radiator ...will a tractor radiator even cool a small block chevy?
DEFINITELY a Pontiac radiator shell.
