I have a brand new Champion Alum F-Body Rad (#CC-951) . I've been told a F-body rad is a direct drop in for 86-87 GBodys .and seems to be a very popular drop-in rad over on the other board . This rad has no oil cooler only trans cooler. I never ran a oil cooler on any of my engines - $130 U Pick up :)

Core Dimensions: 16-3/4" high x 26-1/2" wide (3 row core)
Overall Dimensions: 20" high x 32" wide
Upper inlet: 1 3/8" located on driver side.
Lower outlet: 1 5/8" located on passenger side.
Auto trans cooler: included (Radiator will work on automatic or manual transmission)
OE mounting system
OE style brass petcock drain.
Billet style fill neck construction NOT STAMPED

lets move this thing before I throw it up for sale elsewhere . taking up to much room - $100 PayPal/U Pick Up
it would cost you $300+ to get this rad up here .

I have the F-body rad in GN #2 and it cools it very well even during HOT summer days with the AC blowing. :headbang:

Just a heads up to any board members that maybe considering a fbody rad drop in . just came back from the buyers place who happened to have a stock rad laying around . the fbody rad as mentioned was a perfect match up to the stock rad .
