MESA, Ariz. — Automakers increasingly use aluminum to save weight and improve efficiency — and those same principles can also be used in classic cars. Impala Bob’s has added a line of high-efficiency, two-core aluminum radiators for 1961-76 full-size Chevrolets that are 30 to 40 percent lighter than typical copper radiators. Priced at $439.88, the radiators match the original appearance and factory mountings, and their satin finish can be painted black for an OEM look. For a custom look, radiators with a polished finish are priced at $539.88. Customers can order onlineor call 1-800-IMPALAS (1-800-467-2527).
“Our aluminum radiators use 1-inch tubes compared to the typical ½-inch tubes in a copper radiator,” said Impala Bob’s President Bob Antebi. “That creates more surface contact area from the tubes to the fins and helps dissipate the heat more quickly. A two-row aluminum radiator delivers the same heat transference and dissipation as a conventional four-row radiator.”
Also critical to engine cooling are the fan and shroud. Impala Bob’s has an OEM-style four-blade fan priced at $51.99. A variety of steel and fiberglass fan shrouds are available for 1959-68 small-block and big-block V8 models, with prices ranging from $129.88 to $309.88.
