  • Lark Radiator

    Is there a brand X radiator that will fit into my 63 Lark with a 289 and AC?

    not sure, but any late Lark or Hawk rad will work (not sure what year they went to the 2-bolt thermostat housing, but anything that year through 64 will work.)

      I know that. I was looking for some brand X that I could buy new that might work. More or less bolt in

        Call SASCO and see what they still have in stock for radiators. Dennis Lambert was able to find an NOS radiator for my '63 6-cyl. wagon. It was about 1/2 the price of getting the old one re-cored.

          My nephew bought a n aluminum radiator from Jeggs for his 60 Lark v8. He later used the same radiator in his 63 Avanti. I believe it was a cross flow but it bolted into both cars with very little work. I think the cost was under $200.

            How about CJ series Jeeps? It would be interesting if the jeep radiators would work out. They have a good following and radiators are being produced for them. I just traded a jeep I had kept for over 10 years and never thought about comparing the dimensions to my Lark.

              A few years back someone on the Stude alt board suggested a radiator for a Nissan 280 or 300 Z.

              I was looking at a brass one on ebay, they were designed for a 2.8 6 cylinder but were 3 core and priced very well, only look of the tanks were different. I'm not sure if the inlet/outlet sizes were the same size for a v8. I don't see them listed any more.

              The only ones I see now are aluminum, they have the inlet/outlet sizes listed so maybe you can see if it would work.

              shipping seems high on this..oh, I just noticed the seller's from china[:0]

              this is a 2 core, has more of the shape of the original.

              I don't know if they'd work but it's just a thought.

                those look like they would work if the hose sizes are right, but the mounting flange is on the wrong side of the core, you'd have to drill holes through the front flange of the rad support. Not a big deal though if it otherwise works.

                  Thank you for all your input. It gives me something to look at. It looks like that Nissan radiator might work
