My 1927 Cabriolet has a chrome looking shell. Could it be aluminum or is it steel?? What is the correct shells for the 1927's??

The aluminum radiator shells for 1926 and 1927 Chevrolets are as rare as hen's teeth.
I have seen "damaged" or worn one's sell on eBay well above five hundred dollars.
Wouldn't it be great if someone figured out how to get some "panel beaters" overseas to make these things to spec.

A magnet will tell the story. just make sure you check it in an area that doesn't have steel behind it if it turns out to be aluminum.
