looking for a radiator

Hello folks: I recently returned home from a three Iraq tour as many of us coming home I got diagnosed with PTSD.I don't like the medication so I am restoring this truck as therapy along with some meds. I had never heard of the Durant enterprise as he pursued the American dream. This truck was found in a Kansas barn the original owner a farmer made the conversion to deliver supplies from his general store he had. I also found a glass mason jar with the 1923 Star repair manual and a picture of the farmer next to the truck. I plan to keep it as original as I can but looks like the radiator has been patched way to many times, so I am looking for a 1923 Star model C 4 cylinder radiator. I realize that it would be like a needle in a haystack but I am willing to take a shot at it. I plan to become a member of this great website soon. in the meantime you can call me @ (812)528-4566 or my face book page

Hi Joe:
Sorry i don't have what you need but I did want to say thanks for serving our country. I tried to enlist in air force back in 1968 but was turned down at my physical so I never got the chance but that does not mean I don't love my country. Anyways hope you recover and live a long and prosperous life. And good luck with the truck.

Re: looking for a radiator

Well shoot... I have an extra radiator. I was keeping it as a spare , but if that's all that's keeping you from getting your Estella back to running, I shall have to give it up . I look forward to talking more with you and seeing pics.

Re: looking for a radiator

Thank you all for such great response and concern to my search on the 1923 star radiator. I won't mention names of those who offered options and ideas, I don't wantto leave no one out with my memory the way it is. I was offered several radiators but most needed repaired in one form or another. and the shipping is costly, so I took the nearest one to my address. You all are a fine group and you make me proud of serving the greatest country in the world. Thank you and God Bless America!
