  • Cool/Heat: Need help IDing radiator

    I have a friend who needs a radiator for his '63 GT Hawk. I have two in my parts stash, one says 1547529, MC 5C9, the other 1554341, MC 5K1. They are both out of Hawks, so I'm pretty sure either would fit, but would either be correct for a '63? Thanks for your help.

    Hello Dwight

    1554341 is listed for regular 289's w/o powershift or H.D. trans. (289 auto for Y1-Y3-F3-P3 1962-1964)
    RADIATOR TWO CORE FOR 1962-1964 V-8 SEDAN WITH OUT FLOOR SHIFT

    1547529 was for many 1959/60 models with A/C.

    Regards

        Isn't 1547529 for six cylinder use?

          Len,
          I think you may be right, after further examination it appears the 1547529 in my parts pile has a six cylinder shroud on it. We lucked out as I also had a 1554341 which will work on my friend '63 289 GT.
          Thanks for the quick response guys, once again the forum came through!

              Jackb, We had two to choose from, so why not use the one with the correct part number?

                I'm just suggesting that within certain years there were very little differences between Hawk, Lark, etc. I'll bet if you installed a 62' taxi cab radiator in a 64' Hawk(tho different part #'s), you'd never know the difference. That's assuming a good radiator. Same with front coil springs. V8's for ragtops, wagons A/C or other.... if NOS, you'd never know.... But your'e talking 2 used radiators of "?" condition ?
