Post by richard » Fri Feb 15, 2019 11:59 am

I had these copied from original, almost the same, but uses a slightly different radiator cap. This is a 2000 '68 aluminum radiator, profesionnaly welded not China. '69/'70 almost ready. 1600 will follow.

Very nice! Will these handle engine swapper needs?

I would much rather have these than China junk!

One of the problems with the Champion radiators was that they weren't a dropin fit for later cars, due to the steering box, I thinkl.

Will these radiators drop in to all appropriate models?

Very nice looking piece of work. Looks exactly right and only questions are where and how much?

Maybe the next time Richard comes over from the Netherlands to go on a cruise with Ted he can stuff some in his suitcase :D
P.S. Richards website is listed with the other vendors on the quick links.

Richard and Erica are planning a USA roadster trip this year in August to end at the SHEDD ROADSTER BBQ.
A few radiator orders may justify an extra airline carry on suitcase! :D :D

These are made to the specifications of each year and model, we are aware of the differences in the later style steering box, fan shrouds, etc.

A radiator is made to your specific model and year roadster and will cost US$685,- excl shipping costs.
Original weight (without shroud) 5,5kg (12,13 pound) and the aluminum weighs 3,9kg (8,6 pound).
We ship from the Netherlands.

Nice Job Richard! I thought about doing the same, All USA construction since I could not see ever using one of the "square top" radiators, but your's look excellent. j
