Re: Durant radiator for sale

Hey Bill, if it's for your Model 65 be careful the Model 65 had a longer radiator than the other 28 models. I found that out the hard way when I bought one and put my original and the new one side by side. The M2 & M4 as well as the Model 55 had a smaller radiator.

Re: Durant radiator for sale

Bill I'll go out and measure mine later this morning. Norm, the Model 65 radiator and shell is a bit longer than the others for 1928. Not sure about the Model 75 one but I think they might be the same. My car was built in January 1928 and has the outside parts chromed including the shell. They advertising brochure states that the outside parts are of the new chrome process. The inside handles and parts are nickel. Like I said I found out the hard way. Some years back I found a radiator and shell on Ebay for a good price, I bought them and I knew the bottom of my radiator poured water. Got the radiator in, had it in my garage for a couple of years until one day I moved them side by side. I noticed that the original radiator was a few inches longer. Width is the same, just the height. My car also had the Glo Lite lights and lenses in them with the gold plated bulb cover and the parking light in them which I know was on the Model 75 as I've seen Larry's car and it has those lights on them. So in my case I'll send it out next year to the Brassworks and have them make mine new again so I can use the original radiator.

Re: Durant radiator for sale

Hi Mike ..just copying what the 1935 US after market says re nickel and chrome. Canada 35 and 38 give no indication at all if painted, nickle, or chromed for any shell from 23 to 34. However it does breakdown what rad and shell fits what model. 65 and 75 the same for rad and shell. At times you wonder if its the same Co that produced both 35 after markets with not being the same with info. 28 pages Can and 24 US. I know lights and shocks aren't mentioned in US but sure are in Can ones. Haven't bothered to see what else is missing.

Lamps in Can after markets have one section just for 65, 70, 75 Glolite 9 7/16, Glolite 10 1/8, Twilite 10 1/8. lenses. 9 1/2 nickle plated door, 10 1/2 chromed door, with curved edge, 10 1/2 chromed door with flat edge. Door lock ring for doors 9 1/2 dia lamps, and door lock ring for 10 1/2 dia lamps. Also has a note If your reflectors are dull, send them to us to be replated at a cost of $1.25 a pair.

40, 60, 401 section, 55 section, 63, 66 section, 617 section. We have the choice after 29 of Glolite or Depress Beam. Reason being Durant Motors versus Dominion Motors. Durant US inc the 619 was Glolite # 944 9 7/16. Can same lense / light 1930 until Dominion cars, which use Depress Beam 9 5/16 Durant and Frontenac. What I find strange is fender light lenses are all Depress Beam #1179, 3 x 2 3/4 chromed or painted bodies Durant or Dominion Motors. And scarcer then hens teeth to find. Exception seems to be the odd ball 617 with its own fender lights, not cowl lights of the 28 / 29's, which is half 30 and half pre 30.
