Why Cold Case?

Why Cold Case?

Here at Cold Case, our goal is to produce the highest quality aluminum radiator, make every model be a direct fit, look original, all while maintaining a reasonable price point. Our extensive research and development team ensures that you are getting a drop in radiator with every purchase. We don't cut corners or cross over year ranges if the dimensions are close. If we list it, it's a direct fit with no modifications to be made.

All Cold Case Radiators Feature:

- Lifetime Warranty
- 60 Day COOL Guarantee
- Correct OEM Fitment
- 100% Expert TIG Welded
- 2 Oversized Cooling Rows
- (2x) 1" to 1 1/4" Tubes Per Row
- OEM Stamped Fully Polished Tanks

Take a look below at the following comparisons between a Cold Case radiator and the competition.




This picture shows that we made the inlet and outlet correct for a 64-65 GTO. Their's is universal for 64-67 and had the inlet on the wrong side and the petcock valve in the wrong spot. Cold Case does each application RIGHT.


Note the clean Cold Case look where welds are on the inside of the tank instead of the outside. Also note the ability to install an original looking radiator cap on Cold Case Models.


Don't be fooled by '2 row' cooling. Both of these radiators are 2 row. However, the Cold Case unit has (2) 1-1/8" rows vs (2) 5/8" rows for about 40% higher volume!
This CC radiator holds 2.25 gallons vs the one on the right only holds 1.5 gallons.'


Stamped tanks vs welded tank. Note the clean Cold Case look where welds are on the inside of the tank instead of the outside. Also see our welds vs the competition.


Our welds vs their welds.



Our Cold-Case radiator is 42.7 % lighter than a comparable copper radiator but has 30% more material thickness
than the cheaply made no-name radiators.


Fluids enter the radiator by water pump pressure but pass through the radiator also by gravity. Therefore in most situations, there are always hot and cold spots in traditional radiators.
Cold Case Dual or Tri Flow* designed radiators more evenly distributes the fluid eliminating hot and cold spots. Look for the Dual or Tri-Flow symbols on your favorite radiator.

*Top/bottom tank radiators physically can't utilize dual flow and must have offset inlet and outlets in order to make tri-flow possible. Therefore the availability of Tri-Flow in Top/Bottom tank radiators is limited.
