Q & A

What's in the Box

The 1968-1974 second generation Nova utilized a cross flow saddle mount radiator in two different core sizes. Some standard models were fitted with a 20-3/8" core while Big Blocks and most Small Blocks received the 23" core. AFCO engineered these radiators to fit in the stock location of the 23" radiator while still retaining the factory fan shroud. No modifications to the vehicle are required.

  • Built-in mounting brackets w/ pre-drilled holes
