Q & A

What's in the Box

When it comes to the cooling performance of these radiators, they are second to none. AFCO Aluminum radiators allow your car to remain at a constant temperature, which means that power delivery is more consistent. The uniformity of an all-aluminum construction radiator allows for the best pound for pound heat transfer characteristics.

For 1938 Chevrolet passenger cars.
  • 100% Aluminum construction (no epoxy)
  • Furnace brazed core
  • Tanks are made of .080” 3003 aluminum for strength and durability
  • TIG welded by skilled craftsmen in the USA
  • Factory pressure-tested
  • Filler necks feature screw-in bleed – won't crack or leak with age
