Stay Cool and Look Factory with a Johnson’s Radiator Works Engine Swap Radiator
So you did an engine swap in your early Ford hot rod, ‘60s muscle car, or classic truck. You want the OEM look of a copper-brass radiator, but aren’t sure if it will keep the engine as cool as an aluminum radiator would. That won’t be an issue with a Johnson’s Radiator Works Engine Swap Radiator. Made in-house at Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop, they feature a high-flow copper core with four rows of 1.25-inch by 1/2-inch brass tubes to keep any engine short of a full-on race motor nice and cool.
The radiators are drop-in replacements for the factory units and are available in configurations to fit small and big block Chevy, small and big block Ford, and LS engines.
Other features include:
- Made using original tooling from Walker Radiator, the pioneer in copper-brass hot rod radiators
- 12-gauge steel side brackets with pre-stamped mounting holes where needed
- One-piece tanks stamped from .040-inch brass
- Brass petcock
- Designed for use with 15- to 18-pound radiator cap
- Many applications available with a built-in transmission cooler
