1953-1956 Ford F-100 Truck Aluminum Performance Radiator.

For trucks with inline 6 or later V8.

These COLD-CASE radiators are Tig welded 100% aluminum and absolutely beautiful.
Don't buy a 3 or 4 row aluminum radiator! It doesn't cool as good as these oversize 2 row models.

These radiators are original appearing and have the correct stamping. Once painted, you'd be hard pressed to find a difference over an original versus a COLD-CASE.

-Polished OE style tanks
-16 fins per inch
-Corrugated fins that give more surface area and more thermal transfer

Fit is Good. I just wish the top tank was more rounded to look more like the original.

Everything looks good except inlet and outlet sizes. The radiator has 1 3/4 outlet at the bottom. My engine is 1 1/2.
