    CC6265 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 63-67 Chevy Nova Radiator This is a really nice radiator. And it is very affordable. It seems to be built well and fits in its application nicely. It also cools really good and brings the engine temperature down in a timely manner.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Finish Not direct replacement, but drilling a couple of holes is not a big deal. Finish is awesome, better than expected.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Radiator Radiator seemed to be of good quality and at a fantastic price. It did require drilling a mounting hole on the lower passenger side of my 65 Nova so you will need to do a little work to install. I also received the radiator with the wrong transmission bungs welded in so my transmission lines wouldn't thread. Jegs and Champion jumped on the problem quickly and another one is being sent to me with free return shipping on the wrong radiator. Other than the mix up, I am happy with the purchase.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not bolt in This radiator was claimed to be a bolt in for a first gen Nova ('63 in my case). The mounting bolt pattern is 1" wider then stock and used metric bolts, no big deal but still not bolt in. A bigger issue is the trans cooler connections. They are also metric thread. Try to find a metric 12x1.25 inverted flare adapter! I ended up using a 12x1.5 adapter and epoxying the adapters in. What a piece of junk. I tried emailing the company but received no response. I suppose what do I expect for such a low price. Spend a little more money and get a much better product. I gave it an overall rating of "Poor" because if you can't bolt it into your car, what good is it.

    What Are The Top Champion 3-Row/Core Aluminum Radiators Products?

    The largest-selling radiator is the 3 Row design with automatic transmission cooler fitting many 1963-1990 GM passenger cars and trucks using a 28.25" core. In second place is the 1966 – 1974 Ford F-100 pickup truck with automatic transmission design. Completing the top three radiators is the Champion radiator design fitting 1965-1988 GM vehicles with 26.25" core and automatic transmission.

    How Much Do Champion 3-Row/Core Aluminum Radiators Cost?

    Champion radiators range in price from around $230 for a radiator only to over $800 for a complete kit with a shroud, electric fans, overflow tank, and wiring harness.

    What Are The Main Benefits of Champion 3-Row/Core Aluminum Radiators?

    The 3 core aluminum radiator selection offered by Champion Cooling Systems uses three rows of 3/4 " tubes. This design is capable of keeping an engine with up to 800 horsepower cool with proper airflow. The aluminum construction provides the best dissipation of heat, allows more coolant capacity, and uses no epoxy for construction; only welded seams.

    How To Install Champion 3-Row/Core Aluminum Radiators

    The first step in the installation process for a Champion radiator is to remove the old radiator if it is still installed. Next, the new radiator is lowered into place in the cradle. Then secure the radiator with mounting hardware, the shroud, or a support cover to the radiator support. If you are using an electric fan, it will need to be mounted to the radiator as well. Next, the upper and lower radiator hoses can be clamped to the radiator from the water pump and thermostat housing. If the vehicle has an automatic transmission, the fluid cooler lines are reconnected next. Then, the coolant overflow or recirculation tank is connected to the radiator. After confirming the correct radiator cap fits the radiator, the coolant can then be poured into the radiator. The engine coolant bleeding process can then begin with the engine running as well as checking the automatic transmission fluid level and topping off if necessary. The overflow tank can then be filled to the correct level, completing the installation process.
