Quote from: Lexi on September 15, 2022, 08:10:10 PMTim doesn't look like I can send my images via PM. So posting here. I don't think any of those parts you mentioned are with the radiator. I am not even sure if the car had AC or not. The fellow who removed said it came out of a 1955 Cadillac that was running, but otherwise toast-so it was stripped down for parts. Will post a shot of the Harrison # and perhaps you or another member can confirm what this fits. There appears to be an old rebuilders plate on it which may account for the decent shape that it is in today. I would normally want $100 for it, but $65 USD will be fine for a Forum member such as yourself. Not sure what shipping would be, that I would have to calculate. Worse case scenario I might have to buy a large box for it as I don't think I have anything here that can package it. Overall in very decent shape. I would still have it recored for peace of mind though. If you were adventuresome you could buy one of those fin tools and straighten the bent fins, flush it out and try it as is. Doesn't sound like it is full of sediment but I hear a "stone" like rattle noise from inside when turned upside down. Possible loose solder ball floating around in there? Anyways, a decent core to be sure. Not all dented and banged up. Small dent on top tank rebuilder could easily push out. Evan so as it looks better than many I see on driving cars at cruise nights. This looks like the rad on my '56, except the drain cock is in a different place which I believe is common to the '55. Clay/Lexi

Quote from: Lexi on September 19, 2022, 03:54:20 PMHave not heard from the original poster, so I assume he has passed on this. I will look into what is involved in shipping to Germany for you. As I stated earlier I may have to purchase packaging materials which would be added to the cost, as I don't have anything suitable here to contain it. I checked out some new radiator boxes at the local garage and they don't fit this beast. I thought I could use one of those and add extra padding, but not possible with what was available. I think if I do ship to you, I would have to build something for it and add that to the cost. Will try to keep the rad cost and box building total to $100 USD but actual shipping cost would be extra. My 1956 Cadillac Master Parts List show that this Harrison radiator #3132357 is good for 1954 - 1956 Cadillac, without AC. My Hollander Interchange manual from 1959 also provided the same information. Can't remember what the differences are with an AC and a non-AC radiator. If you are still interested let me know and I will investigate shipping. If you have a courier preference please advise. Clay/Lexi

I'm still interested but it appears that the pinhole leak has gone away? I haven't seen any further leaks and she's retaining both pressure and fluid. I am still interested in either radiator from Lexi or V63 but if Nickl has grabbed the radiator from Lexi then I'll work with V63.
