  • studebaker radiator replacement

    has anyone found a replacement radiator that will fit hawks and larks V8? any cores available that will fit studebaker radiator frames? thanks henry cavedo

    Any decent radiator shop can recore your existing radiator. Cores are readily available to them (the shops). I've recently had 2 or 3 recored and the cost was in the $225 range.

    Miscreant at large.

      Sounds like you maybe don't have a radiator to recore? Radiator shops get core material in blocks that they can cut to fit any configuration. They use the same blocks for heater cores, which are much smaller than radiators.
