Vintage and Veteran Radiators
With many vintage and veteran radiators the choice is available to have the original style Honeycomb core or Cellular film core refitted or a higher efficiency replacement GOT core or Packed construction core using the Cellular film replacement system, that usually works out more economical. Many now redundant items such as radiators with overhanging top tanks and the bucket style top tank are all recreated in our workshops.
Classic car radiators
We have seen a dramatic rise in the number of classic car radiators that are being sent to us for new cores to be soldered into them. We can upgrade the existing style core with a high efficiency modern GOT core or Packed construction core and in many instances we can offer a core that is deeper and has improved fin to increase the radiator performance, whilst maintaining the aesthetics and appearance of the original radiator.

We were presented with a radiator for a Merlin Kitcar that had been fitted with a Granada 2.8 engine. We recognised the radiator to be from a Ford Capri 2.0. Our client was complaining of overheating and asked if we could increase the height of the radiator. He said that there was space for another 50mm in height. We measured the radiator on his vehicle and found that we could also squeeze a 3 row core into the existing tanks and sides whilst still clearing the water pump pulley. Read More
