What's in the Box

Speedway’s line of universal Chevy radiators makes it easy for budget-minded racers to get a professional-quality aluminum racing radiator. These high performance radiators feature furnace-brazed construction, two rows of large 1" aluminum tubes, billet filler necks and a maximum number of fins per inch for great heat transfer. They are not available with transmission coolers and they do not come with mounting brackets.

These Chevy-style radiators have driver’s side upper inlets, passenger side lower outlets, and can be ordered in a variety of custom widths.

  • All-aluminum, furnace-brazed construction
  • No cheap epoxy glue or crimped in gaskets
  • Maximum amount of fins per inch allows greater heat transfer
  • Billet filler necks
  • Available in 22", 24", 28", or 31" widths (measurements include tanks)

Learn more about how radiators work and selecting the proper radiator for your vehicle by reading our tech article, Radiator Cooling Performance.

Notes

  1. These aluminum radiators are built for racing applications and are configured for Chevy engines, meaning they have driver’s side upper and passenger side lower outlets. Lower hose neck is slightly angled.
  2. Radiator widths listed include the side tanks and are the outside to outside width.
  3. Speedy Bill recommends using a 32 lb. or less radiator cap and to check it regularly.

Excellant for the price.

August 25, 2014
Went into a 1940 Ford PU street rod. Only prob I had was the lower outlet is angled, would have been an easier installation if it were straight. Had to modify the radiator support brackets I had made prior to getting the radiator. Made it hard to simply lift and drop into place. Great product tho, would buy again. Plan ahead if you have clearance problems.

Dimensions of overflow? Length and diameter

Answers

January 29, 2015
EricM
The overflow connection is 1/8" NPT. A straight hose barb is included so that you can connect a 1/4" hose. This is just a short hose barb (approximately 1 1/2" long) and will need to have a hose connected to it. The length you make that hose is not critical. Whatever length it takes to get to your overflow tank or directed towards the ground is fine.

Sorry the aluminum alloy used on this radiator is not specified. The inlet and outlet sizes are OD measurements. The ID of the inlet and outlet will be 1/8" smaller than the OD.

We offer an Afco radiator that is a bolt in for your 66 Nova which is part number 10680287. It is available with or without a transmission cooler. If you plan to install an automatic in the future I would suggest getting a radiator with a transmission cooler. It can be plugged off while you are still using the manual transmission.
