Reply To: Re-core 1931 radiator?

Randy,

Don’t be ashamed.  Better $afe than sorry!

I understand that my re-core (honeycomb core, radiator not yet re-assembled) will cost $2,654 for the core and $900 for labor to assemble the radiator.  I was told that a v-cell core would have cost $2,316.  That was from the fellow that everyone I trust recommended.  I opted for the honeycomb, as the v-cell was not that much of a saving.  (I was also told that a reputable restoration firm had installed a modern core on a car like mine, but with the faster flow, the water was not being sufficiently cooled, and the modern core was replaced with a honeycomb core.)  That’s all I know.
