There are many direct fit aftermarket aluminum radiators for the '53 core support. The cost of which is the same as a Nova without any modifications to mount.
Ha! Can you tell I hot rodded an X-body before? Agreed on the 53 rads, I'm assuming that's the motive behind the query.

You don't miss a thing, I like that!

The 72 GP radiator including tanks is 34" FWIW.

idrivejunk John, I also have a square S-10 currently on hand at the moment, 4.3L stick, if you're blue-skying about precious radiators and want hands-on measurements. Hey I'll go size up the stock 72 GP rad and that will be a reason to lay hands on it today. They may have wider shorter cores on GPs though.

Mitch I spaced that whole little clump of posts and missed your input on BBC #s. Reckon I'll scope all that out as I get started on it. Kinda chomping at the bit, ready to do another muscle-era ride. The 30s have been and are fun but I'm a 60s fan at heart.

Ahhhh, very bad memories dug up.. ..4th grade teacher, Mrs Wilman...400 pounds of witch. She not only used the ruler but would have us stand, get behind, grab our shoulders and knee butt us right in the tail bone.. I've had back problems my whole life from that witch... And she stunk too...

Talk about a play on words...actually took a few reads to catch it...

I bought the correct brake line clips for my Chevelle at least 6 months ago and now that I'm ready for them, I can't find them ANYWHERE in the disaster called my shop. Between John and I looking, we have moved 4 tons of parts in the last few days and no sign of them. I gave up and ordered 4 more yesterday. Another $45 pi$$ed in the wind.
The first set should come out of hiding any day now...

Today was odd because I loaned a car to my Mom. She dug the GT and I got fed. Is there anything still in my teeth?

This beast was in today, I can tell that popcorn machine center exit exhaust note from way over yonder. It ended up with some hood pin type things somewhere along the line that I guess I approve of since its so top-endy.

On a more interesting front I went out to the shop today and watched some primer dry and waited for my 00 victor torch tip to arrive. Wow these things are pricey.

No, That can be blamed on my clumsy Mother.

HOW did you come up with that name 25 years ago ??? The movie wasn't out yet...

Fortunately I had a second grade Teacher who taught me how to read. Tolkien was a old friend.

If you can read the code stamped in the pad on the block, that will tell you what it is and possibly if it is the original to the car.

I don't remember the exact dimensions, but you can find them on Summit or Jeg's by searching for a direct replacement radiator. I believe you will find it is too wide for the Nova sub. You should be able to fit a stock sized Nova radiator under the body and be good with a 4 row copper/brass or an aluminum one.
