  • 1921 radiator and shroud

    I purchased a 1921 radiator and shroud,I believe it to be anyway.It is painted metal and not chrome.It has the emblem on it similar to what your website has on its main logo.Anyway i am making wall art out of it (non destructive i might add)i was wondering what type of radiator cap might be correct for it?it has a threaded radiator,looks almost like pipe thread.the shroud is mostly primer color and i was assuming that it was black originally,were 1921 era studebakers anything other than black?

        The Boyce Motometer caps were a deluxe addition in those days. They would display coolant temperature before those gauges were remoted to the dash. Standard models were fairly unadorned; may have just had a simple screw on cap.
        Motometers can be found. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...All-Categories 1921? Yes, and, as to the color...unless it was deluxe chromed or, more appropriately, nickeled, any you wanted as long as it was black.
