Q & A

What's in the Box

The '62-'67 Nova continues to be the choice of many car builders today for their ability to achieve high horsepower-to-weight ratios. AFCO designed these OEM-style vertical core radiators to maintain the OEM styling, while gaining increased cooling capacity. It bolts into the stock mounting hole locations for simple installation. No cutting or drilling is required.

NOTE: Use 1966-67 thermostat housing and upper hose. The 6-Cylinder shroud will not fit with the bracket assembly on this radiator.
