1940 Plymouth Radiator/ Stay or Go

My '40 Plymouth has a solid radiator but I am wondering if It will keep a 440 hp sb Mopar cool? It had a 80 hp strait 6, it holds water, its a little old, but a new replacement is $500 bucks. it would be nice to have some integrated auto tranny tubes.... but $500 buys quite a few parts....sometimes

I rum a late 30s Plymouth radiator in my Willys Coupe to cool my 354 hemi. Worked fine for many years buy the core got old (and I knocked a few holes in it over the years!) so I had it re-cored a couple of years ago. I imagine yours will do just fine. Any radiator shop can add a tranny cooler to your bottom pan for not too many shekels.

Thanks for the info, I have a shop pretty close to the house, and planned on taking it over for a once over anyway but thought I would ask.

I agree....

what he said...have it re-cored and fitted with a trans cooler. Start off fresh and you won't have a problem down the road with and old radiator failing at the most inconvenient time.
