Walker C-487-2 Cobra 1930-1931 Ford Model A Radiator for Chevy Engine
                        

Walker Cobra Series radiators boast a relatively thin, but efficient, high-flow copper core which is ideal for use with mild Small Block engines with stock or low compression ratios. Each radiator is built for a direct fit with heavy gauge steel side brackets and standard mounting holes pre-stamped. Plus, all radiators feature a built-in oil cooler for use with automatic transmissions. They work with original, reproduction, steel or fiberglass grille shells.

  • Dummy filler neck in OEM location - accepts stock type caps & accessories
  • Copper core w/ 1-piece brass tanks
  • Vertical tubes every 1/4" and 17 fins per inch of height
  • Heavy duty 12 Ga. steel side brackets w/ pre-drilled holes
  • Use a 15-18 lb. radiator cap
  • Brass drain cock
  • Simple bolt-in install w/ no modifications to grille or grille shell

Small Block Ford engines can take advantage of the less expensive and more readily available "Chevy" radiators by using a passenger side inlet water pump (such as our 910-15544) and get additional steering box/fuel pump clearance to boot!
