Post radiator

Can I get by with my original radiator in my '38
Ford with 350 Chev.? That's what they did in the "old days" and it must have worked. I'll
simply block off two of the outlets. There
seems to be plenty of capacity.I'd like to save
the $450 for a new aluminum one. What else might
fit without too much modification?
Thanks

Yes you can use a stock radiator with a stock or mild 350. But I would have yours checked by a reputable radiator shop first. Your radiator is pushing 65. You want to have it both pressure checked and flow checked to see if it will still work out.

Bomo speaks the truth. I reccommend that you ask your radiator man about adding AC. I think the worst case senario is you will have to have your radiator recored. But take it to a shop to verify its' condition and have a radiator expert help you evaluate your needs. I am going through this process now with my 57 chevy.
