Radiators

Any recommendations on where to get a good new copper / brass radiator ?
Or maybe an aluminum radiator. Weight is not and issue. Just a good radiator that will cool good in summer in No. Calif , for a reasonable price.
It's going in a 62 Nova with a 290 hp 350 crate motor.
Thanks , Gene

check out these guys - - they are in Carson, Calif and they seem to have a pretty good selection.

remember to upgrade your fan and shroud if necessary because they are just as important as the radiator for the proper cooling.

call my buddie Curly at Curly's Radiator (ask to talk to Curly or call back when hes there)


Curly's Radiator Service. 510 5th Avenue Holdrege, Nebraska, 68949 Phone: (308)995-2458.

Curly said he can put a copper / brass core in a 4 core radiator tanks thats like a 5 or 5 1/2 core radiator. his prices are fair.

he sells alum too. but said copper / brass will out cool alum, and you can fix copper / brass radiators.
