Anyone use this aluminum radiator?


I'm planning ahead for my big block swap. Has anyone tried one of these? I like that it looks so original, and Auto City Glass has been a great place to deal, in my experience.

I have not used this brand Carl-but I put an aluminum in my 66 rag before I sold it to Brian and it was really nice-kept the motor nice and cool

I am most interested in a rad that looks pretty original but does a good job too.

I can buy a repro copper rad but it's double the money of this one and I really like how original this one looks. Plus Auto City has been great to deal with.

I don't think you could go wrong with that one Carl. Aluminum is the way to go today. Twin big tube will cool a high compression BB no trouble, mine is proof. And you can paint it black for a more factory look.

If I could do it again, I'd like the stamped tanks.

And if it bothers you to buy offshore, then save up about 300 cdn more and buy a USA made one.

I'm not keen on an offshore rad but man, the price difference is too much. I just can't justify that much extra for US made.

Two things appeal about this rad, the price, and it really does look a lot like the original. (Especially when it gets a coat of black radiator paint....)
