Default copper harrison radiator id??? help!

Hello all,

I have scoured the internet for 15+ hours trying to determine what this radiator went to. It is a 2 core copper harrison radiator. any ID tags are missing, the only other stamp on it is the "fill cold" line. it measures 17.5" wide x 13.5" tall. I know they're arent a lot of these around anymore and would like to sell it to someone 4 thier restoration......if I could just figure out what in the hell it goes to!!! It came out of my grandfathers basement and he was an all around auto-trader, so no clues there.

Any advice would be appreciated! Ive looked and looked under measurements and harrison and 2 core copper and everything else i can think to search with. I joined this forum in hopes that some of you enthusiasts might be able to help. imma try to upload pics.

Thanks bunches! from a gal with a radiator in her kitchen copper harrison radiator id??? help!-radiator-001.jpg

No telling what that went to. Considering the company started making radiators in 1911ish, the possibilities are exponentially unlimited to the applications this radiator went into because of the simplicity of the radiator itself and the cost effectiveness to just mass produce one type of model. I do wish you luck in finding the what it went to and hope you can keep us posted if you do.

It looks to me to be out of an old Chevy Vega. I would just sell it for scrap as I don't believe there would be any demand for it.

i agree with mike there are likely millions of applications. i can think of a ton that would have the inlet and outlet in those positions. i would just advertise the specs and sell it that way, im sure there is someone that would be very happy to get that
