  • 53 Coupe Radiator

    Is there a difference in the 6cyl champion and V8 Commander radiators for 1953 C/K.

    Dimensionally all the C/K radiators are the same in '53. Except.... the outlet at the bottom is nearer centerline on the Champion. It can be made to work, though. I changed mine from two core to three.

      I was thinking that the Champion radiators had smaller hose outlets.
