any one need a 1930+ radiator shell. see ebay

any body need a radiator shell?
just saw one on ebay, and they are willing to bring it to Hershey! Hurry time is running out. This vendor is in the same field as the Durant motors automobile club booth, but up near the food vendors.

Hi Carol item 253126630163 has been on eBay awhile now and you can't contact the seller to send him a message on it, it throws you out.

We're sorry we couldn't find an answer for you. Unfortunately, this seller is not able to respond to your question. We suggest reviewing the item again to see if your answer is in the seller's listing.

I was hoping to inform him its not a 1930 shell but a 31 / 32. Look at one of the pictures looking down on top of the shell and the hood holder is the nut and bolt clamp used on the 31 / 32 Durant, Frontenac, Rugby, De Vaux, Plymouth, B42 Mack truck and other vehicles. Hood halves slide in a chromed hood strip. B42 Mack its stainless steel strip and miles to long, so cut to our size. Clamps however are identical to our cars of the 30's. The 1930 hood has piano hinge with round rod that slips in a riveted on shell holder with round hole.

Sure looks like every 1930-31 radiator shell for a 614 or 407 that I've ever seen. Not sure it makes much difference what the clamp holding the hood rod looks like.

Yes Ross its the same shell for 1930 - 32 Durant and Rugby 406, 407, 416, 610, 611, 612, 614, 615, 616, 618, except this one is for 31 / 32. Just checked a 30 shell I have hanging in the basement and if you drill out the rivets to take the 30 hood holder part off, move the holes slightly further apart on the shell, the 31 / 32 clamps will work.
