Cold Case Factory Rebate

This IS an ad! but I'm hoping most of you will be ok with it since we are the sponsor of this forum.

Cold Case is running a factory rebate until the end of February. Find your best price and then get $50 back on a kit or $25 back on just the radiator.


You can go directly to the website or you can PM me if you want to ask any questions.

Re: Cold Case Factory Rebate

I lost my in radiator trans cooler and ended up with strawberry milk shake so I have 2 aluminum radiators in my shopping cart right now, a Cold case and a Champion 4 row while the champion is a little cheaper price is not my main objective, I like the look of Cold case it has the original shape on the tanks, now I am getting older and I have a lot of aluminum parts on my car and I'm getting sick of trying to keep them all polished up all the time.

How does everyone at the car shows keep these radiators shiny? I'm thinking clear coat? surely they aren't polishing these things before the shows right?

My last concern is the idea of 2 1 1/4 tubes instead of 4 5/8 tubes it seems the latter would be a bit stronger laterally am I over concerned?

Greg, Most people occasionally buff up the radiator tank with any number of good aluminum polish products. We have not tested any clear coat products for longevity. The fear would be that it might yellow from heat over time. Then it would be very difficult to remove if that happened.

Another idea would be to paint it black.


We have some samples of 4 core aluminum rads and they are not 5/8". They seem tiny. However, even if they were, that adds up to 2.5" I believe. That's the same as dual 1 1/4". But in a fluid volume test, our dual row unit fit 4 oz more fluid in it than the 4 row Champion. But the more important issue to consider are the 3 gaps in between each tube. That makes the overall thickness of the 4 row thicker even though it holds less fluid. As air tries to pass through the radiator, turbulence is created at each of these gaps. It's harder for the air to get pulled through the radiator. The 4 row aluminum radiator is not as efficient as a big 2 row and especially at slow speeds.

I'm not saying the 4 row won't get the job done, but if your car happens to be right on the edge of running hot, it can and would make the difference between a car that runs 190 all day long and a car that climbs well into the 200's and eventually overheats.

Our philosophy is that if you can buy a better looking radiator that you KNOW cools the best and for a price that is almost the same, why not get the best and be confident in knowing that if a problem still exists, it's NOT the radiator.

Cold Case, nice response to 2cool. I am going to your website right now. You mentioned painting black. A high temp paint for 500 degrees will work fine?

Re: Cold Case Factory Rebate

FWIW.. I have one in my 68 ss396 el camino. very nice looking and functioning unit. mine seems to have kept its shine for nearly 2 years.
Imagine one will make its way in to my 67 ss396 chevelle soon...
now how about a retro active $25 rebate?

We recommend Eastwood. They make a radiator specific paint.
Some of the high temp paints trap the heat in more than lead on.

Even with the rebate, you still probably paid cheaper 2 years ago with the increase we had earlier in the year

Do you have generic radiators like 14.5x14.5 x 2.5?

Sorry, nothing that small. Literally all our radiators are designed to fit an OEM application. A lot of times we get lucky and match up with a universal application but 14" x 14" is not one of them. The smallest we have is 20" H x 16" wide x 2.5" deep.

For those that want to see all our radiator dimensions in one sortable spreadsheet, click on this link;

It all depends on the vehicle. Core width and height is less important than overall. If you can fit a rad in a space, you can always modify brackets for mounting but if the unit is simply too tall or wide...Ö.
