I have a Mustang radiator, I went through a radiator book until I found one with the right dimensions, it just happened to be a Mustang, that is what I have for a engine.

As far as 2 or 4 row, I always go with bigger is better when it comes to radiators. If you run a shroud on it you should have no trouble there.

Just came across your post here. When starting my build back in 1992 I purchased my Radiator from Walker Radiator Works in Memphis, TN. They made a Radiator for a Classic Motor Carriages version of a '34 Ford. Mine came with A/C Condenser installed on the front. The Radiator was a perfect fit to the car and heavy duty. Don't recall how many Rows the core was. Just went through my old paperwork file to my build and found the receipt. Part number was C-AC498-1 CM. Discription 1933-34 Ford. Cost me $511.57 shipping included on 2/04/93. I have one of the ZZ4 Series GM 350 engines installed in my car.

They look like it, the front fenders are over the wheels, which most are not, the tail lights look like the ones they use, the best way to tell is the grille insert, unless it has been changed, they have one bar missing from each side. That one is a nice looking car sits right looks good. If people want to make the changes they can look pretty good. If you have a picture of the front end post it. If the fenders are one piece I think it is as I don't know if anyone else made them all one.

Bob

The one has 34 tail lights on it, if it is a SB they were added. The bottom one has smooth hood side, mine are not and I don't know if they made them that way.

Both cars sit the same, so they either did some thing to there front ends or widen the fenders. The top one tubbed his. But like I said they can do a lot to them if you want to make the changes.

Front end shots would help.

hanging doors on 34 SB cabriolet

i have the hinge posts bolted to the frame and bolted to the body. the manual says the flange where the door panels were cut out should measure 44 3/4 inches across. they are ambiguious as to where to take this measurement so i swagged it. My question is how critical and is this really needed to hang the doors?

I never used the manual when I was putting mine together, I just bolted the hinges on then used shims to get the gaps right.

hinge posts

If no one else can help you sooner I have a 34 Ford (classic Motor Carriage/same as streetbeast) Coupe in storage (never put it together yet). I can take pictures and draw you up some detailed plans so you can build your own, as soon as I finish my shop in a month or so and get the car moved. If I can make my way to the back of the storage shed and find the parts I'll do it sooner. I also have some other resources that may be of help/interest if your not already aware of them. If you are interested just send me a private message and I'll give you my email address...

radiator and grille

I am looking for ideas on the radiator and grille insert for 33 Vicky CMC. The radiator I have came from SB and I wonder if the CMC design is different. Can't see how the newer radiator fits. Also have two brackets that support radiator at bottom according to the build manual. No place on side of radiator where they could mount. Also, I read in previous posts where not many people like the SB insert. I have no insert, not sure I want to pay $1000 for an ugly one from Alumicraft. They say they have one in stock. Anyone ever build their own insert?
