What he said.

Norm is a nice guy, and supports all the events etc., but the management of that business is a mess.

Sorry mate I was on the phone when I posted it and didnt finish my post.

Rocket industries. They had them in stock but I dont know if they have anymore. Give them a call.

$2500.00 for everything except the u shaped part of the core support which is my original one. Also the top cross bar is in that price but it is sold seperatly so it is about $250.00 cheaper without it.
It comes with twin fans and also the controller for the fans.

Here is a shot of the fans. Man those pipes look ugly. Lucky I have a brand new ceramic coated pair to go on.

That's a pity to hear that. he's an Aussie and as Des said he supports a lot of events. I hope he gets his act together

Unfortunately they don't do cooling systems at the moment so it's back to square one. I contacted a couple of vendors on Evil Bay but they couldn't even tell me if their 57 listed radiators would fit in the 6 cylinder position or even if they were good enough for a Big Block so best be keeping away from them.

DeWitts

Dean,

DeWitts Radiators in the USA have an exceptional record amongst the Corvette community and I can't imagine that they would not make one for your car. They're not cheap, but then you don't want a cheap radiator, do you?

Regards from Down Under. :bowtieb:

Last year I replaced the ADC radiator in my '57 with a Brown's Radiator. Best money I have spent on my car in 16yrs. Also have Brown's radiator's in my other 2 cars as well.

Thanks 57 HEVN, did he make it for you or is it a universal one ? I need one to go in front of the radiator support as there is no room in the V8 position because of the Big Block.

There made to suit and are mounted in the 6cyl position. There's a few '57s here in Perth using them. Pretty sure I've got some pics on my home computer i can post up later if you like ?

I have a adc in my car. I can say Norm is a good bloke but the radiator is... well... in the car anyway. But great customer care and he got it right eventually
Try PWR.
And Browns in Perth is first class.

Dean, I don't actually have any pics of mine but it is exactly the same as Darren's setup in these pics :

This setup has the twin AU fans hidden. This package is not a cheap setup and as ozhardtop said, it is 1st class and you get what you pay for.
