Winged Radiator Cap question...
« on: November 30, 2008, 08:26:32 PM »
The winged cap that came on my car has no casting/part number or any other identifying marks underneath. Do any of you guys have an original cap and does it have any markings?

I had an original winged cap (the older threaded style) from a mid-twenties Chrysler that had no markings, so I know that some of the first Chrysler parts had no vender or corporation hallmarks. Just wondering if this was the case on our '28-30 caps.

Hi

Pictured below is a radiator cap from my original 29U.
There are no markings at all on the radiator cap; it was the only part of the car that I didnít restore.
As you can see it was common for one of the wing tips to be missing.

I have one broken cap that I leave on the car all the time and one good one.  Neither of them have any markings of any kind.
