I would suspect that the copper background is because the plating has been polished off.

The touring car in 29 had a very special and rare medallion that just said Plymouth but had blue water with a copper background....Not really I just made that up :) Its funny though I have two of them with just Plymouth on them and they are like the 28 without the Chrysler.

Quote from: Russ T. Fender on November 28, 2022, 07:47:56 PMI thought both the '28 and '29 had the Plymouth logo on the shell but the '28 logo was blue while the '29 was black. From your picture the logo on your shell looks black so that should be the right one.
Someone told me the 28 said Chrysler Plymouth and the 29 just said Plymouth since it was then made a separate division of Chrysler corp. and not just the name of a Chrysler.

The logo is blue & white identical to the one on the car now.

I'm going to have to wait until the shell gets back from the chrome shop to tear it apart and see what the frame looks like on the radiator side. The radiator that is in it now is not correct as it has fins & tubes and a filler neck off to the side that you access from under the right hood. Whoever did it did a pretty decent job of making it work.

The one I am putting back is I assume a correct radiator because it was in a 29 grill shell and fit it perfect. I say its a 29 because according to you folks there isn't another Plymouth that uses the narrow shell and has the Plymouth logo. 

I hope this all works or I am going to have a bunch of money tied up in a radiator and grill I can't use :( You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.

Looks more like an elevator bolt ( large head 1/2" threaded body) .that is through a larger washer then 2 shims or one 1/4" shim rubber set to frame and washer ,lockwasher nut to bottom . Other rad's had stud welded directly on support . Most rusted bad.

Not quite sure what that is and assumed it was some type of rivet.  Possibly not on the 30U since I thought the 30u had welded frames.  Either way the hole has nothing to do with mounting the radiator.  For mounting you need the 2 threaded studs.

I'm thinking there is a big difference between the way your radiator sits and the way it is on the 30-U. This is my crossmember and all it has are the holes to accept the studs shown on Chet's picture.  There would be no reason for the holes on your radiator frame. Does your cross member have the rivets that require those holes? If not then perhaps you have the wrong radiator for your car.  Right now I have to admit that I'm as confused as you are.You cannot view this attachment.

Talk with your radiator shop.  Given both radiators (new & old) they might be able to fabricate a solution. 

In any event someone will have to.
