Do cast iron radiators have a built-in pitch?

I have an old 10-section one in the yard that is definitely oitched to one end. Just curious.

    None of the ones I've seen do... did someone take a hacksaw to one of the end sections?

    No built in pitch that I have seen. All rads have the same length for each leg.
