63- 65 radiators

Recommended Posts

I got one of the 65's all tuned up and it sings. Problem is that the car has been sitting for quite a while. When I finally got it running long enough to heat up, I discovered I had a radiator leak. I have a 63 Riviera with a new radiator in it. Is a radiator for a 63 WO air the same as a 65 with air?

Carl,

Open the radiator cap and count the number of rows of fins you have. I'm 99.9% sure that all first generation Rivs are three core radiators. The only difference between the a/c and non-a/c cars is the number of impellers on the waterpump and non-a/c cars didn't come with a fan shroud. You should be able to swap without any problems.
