    Cool Radiator

    I remember that our vans are a conglomeration of different chevys but I don?t remember what Chevy our original V-8 van got the radiator from. I think it?s from the Camaro. Does anyone know for sure?

    I was told so I'm not sure..

    A radiator shop owner said the G10 radiator was the same core as the 68 Camaro but the side tank was different. Camaro had the radiator cap on one of the side tanks (passenger side I think). Since the rad in our VCVans sat lower in relation to the engine, the surge tank and upper radiator vent tube was added.

    The van in the video was a 6 cylinder and I have a v 8 with the original v 8 radiator which has a hole dead center

    I put the cougar/mustang style aluminum rad in mine 6 or 7 years ago. I have a 350 in it. I put a 7 blade clutch fan and a slightly modified 59 impala shrould in it also and it works very well. I also tow a 19' travel trailer.
