All the years of knowledge on this site and nobody can ID this? Go figure.
There were probably dozens of radiator manufacturers in Europe alone.

Look carefully for a watermark - tag - logo - hallmark.

Anyone recognize this brass radiator manufacturer from 1904 ?

I am trying to locate who the manufacturer of this radiator was.

Thanks !

Thanks to Dave we now know this is a 'made-up' buggy from perhaps the 1950's.

What has been done

Last Monday The Model B fired and caught on three cylinders. I got it all on several videos. Next Sunday or Monday it will probably run on all four.

Re: An apology and thoughts

There is just not a lot of online activity with the brass cars that are not Ford T’s. And I generally think forums are becoming less visited as people generally prefer the Facebook groups.
