Default Radiator recommendation?

I have an early 1928 AR Phaeton, and need a new radiator. Who sells a really good radiator with the original look of a funnel top, but with great cooling. I really want to keep the original style funnel if possible. I live in Florida, and it's awful hot an awful lot!

Oh, and it doesn't have to have round tubes.

Brass works has one and I'm sure Berg's could fix you up.

I am very happy with my Brass Works radiator. They said there were 3 different radiators for '28. Find out which one you have to insure you get what you want.

Brassworks in the only company that makes one that looks original. You could always recore the one you have then you would have choices.

I wish I had an original to get re-cored. My early May 28 car currently has a later radiator replacement.
