    MC289 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Bought this for my 1967 chevelle w/454 big block was truly amazed at how much lower the temp got
    Date published: 2015-10-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Radiator for the money... So far keeps my bbc Pro Street Chevelle running cool... 4 core makes for a tight fit!
    Date published: 2015-09-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit. I purchased the radiator to cool my 1965 big block Chevelle. I am very happy with its cooling ability.
    Date published: 2015-06-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is bigger better? I replaced a 3 row Champion radiator that had a leaking core with this 4 row model. Made no significant difference. Engine temperature is the same with this 4 row as it was with the leaking 3 row radiator. I could have gotten by with another 3 row. I had to elongate the lower mounting holes to line up with the mounting attachment points on a 1965 El Camino. I also cut 9/16x1-inch sections out of the outside fin on both sides to give me access with a socket on an extension to the lower mounting bolts. I would not buy this radiator for a show car. It's bulky looking, the top surface requires polishing to get rid of the bubble wrap marks, and is dished on the drivers side (old one was not), and it's obviously not high end if examined closely, but it is an affordable relatively easy to install after market radiator solution for a daily driver that will never look stock again.
