If I had went tomorrow like usual this would have been melted. T Model I think and I believe it was made in 1906 but not sure. Patented in 1904. Anyone restoring a T?????

The "T"s started in 1908 I think. That could be for an "N" or an "R". It might not even be Ford. I don't know when Ford started building their own radiators. Nice save. There is someone somewhere looking for it. Good Luck, Rick

I know a lot of the T and A model stuff was marked with the Ford script but these are the only markings I see. You could well be right about this being for another model or brand or could have been made a little later and not the dates on it.

It's sad the valuable stuff that get trashed when the economy goes down.

Could be, I really don't have a clue. I did some research but nothing I could really match it to.

I believe you hit this one dead on. From what I can find it could well be the 1906-1908 Model N,R & S made by Ford. The reproduction radiators has the Ford script on the top but the few pictures I found that you can see did not have it. 

Thanks

Livingston supplied radiators to over 40 brands at one time or another. In those days guys would just start building cars in a machine shop and hang a name on them and source parts from wherever they could.
