Classic Industries Radiator

Has anyone used the $200 aluminum radiator from Classic Industries?

I am looking for an aluminum radiator for my car. It is a 350 with 375 hp.

Classic Industries is offering free shipping on orders over $199, so I figured I would ask.

Thanks.

Here is a link for the radiator: http://www.classicindustries.com/cam...s/sr03373.html

Re: Classic Industries Radiator

I would stay away from a cheapo aluminum radiator. Check out Summit racing. They have a pretty good selection. IMHO its worth it to spend a little more in the long run.

It's the Silla ultra cheap radiator. It's a 2-row low density core - the first row is a 1.0" tube, the second row is only a 5/8" tube. Plastic drain plug, stamped filler neck.

Thanks for the replies.
I figured it sounded too good to be true, but thought I would ask.

Re: Classic Industries Radiator

Here are my installed photos. Yeah, I know the support bracket should be in the inside of the shroud but it fits the shroud better that way.

Re: Classic Industries Radiator

I like the front header panel protection material. That's a good idea. I've been using beach towels, but they always slide off.

Go big, or stay Home!
