    That's great, but, the wood would be very expensive to ship......especially 4 cords worth!

    Here are the pictures of the 289 R1 motor I purchased that will go into my 64 Hawk. The radiator came from this car. Motor and transmission rebuilt with 6 K miles since rebuilt.

    Don't mind me, Roy, I'm just being silly! A four ROW core sounds like a good deal to someone! I'd jump on it if I had a project that needed one.

    Radiator.

    Here are 2 pictures of Radiator. Remember, I am not a 53 - 54 stude person. Give me a 1950 or 1951, then you are talking my zone.

    Thanks,

    Phil, I have radiator for your truck. It was tested and worked good. Do you want that one. Where are you located?

    Do you still have this radiator? I see that your post very old but thought it was worth a try. I do need a good radiator for a 1953 Studebaker Commander which had it's original V-8 engine in it. I starting to revive my first car which has been in storage for 40 years. Want to make sure I can get the engine running again before I start pumping more money into the restoration.

    thanks

    It is a bit hard to tell in a Pic but, Roy's Radiator appears to be a '53 Commander Sedan.

    I say that because:

    1. It has the Square cornered Top tank: '53 not '54, but will fit.
    2. It has a straight Inlet Tube, for a Sedan rather than a curved 45 Degrees to the Left Fender for a C or K Model.

    Both my 54 (2ea.)/55 (1 ea.) Conestoga's and my 54 sedan...have the "angled" (NOT straight) inlet. All stock, all original. They also match the clearance built into the fan shrouds. No straight inlets here..!
    My cars (4 of them) do not match your description in note #2.

    SO, that just means that IF Roy's Radiator has a Straight Inlet Tube which it appears it does, it may be for a '51 Commander, or most likely a TRUCK?

    It will not fit a '53-'55 C, K, F, W, Y or D Model without modifications.

    I'll guess and say it's not Truck, I'm thinking Truck has wider mounting flanges

    I don't think so... I've got a 4 row radiator that came out of a functioning C/K that is configured exactly like Roy's radiator. So, I don't know why its being touted as only a 51 Commander or truck, but... there it is. Go figure.

    That is because as Mike Van V. and myself said, you need the angled Tube to clear the required Shroud, if you removed it, all bets are off and good luck cooling it.

    I guess therein lies the problem... I haven't used a factory fan shroud for about 35 years. They don't work very well anyway and I've never had a cooling problem using electric fans on any of my cars. But then again, some folks are just stuck in the use of nothing but stock configurations on their cars and still gripe about the limited use their cars give them. I have always driven my cars modified to MY liking, not that of stock snobs. I can't tell you how many times I've seen Studes show up at Studebaker Club events, and when parked, they puke their coolant all over the pavement. But, thank goodness they drove them in stock form. No thanks.
