Did Imps have 28" radiators?
« Reply #30 on: May 27, 2010, 01:23:40 PM »



That is why I said I don't believe that the actual radiator core for an Imperial is wider than a 26", as I have used many; from early 60's through 70's, without ever running across one that didn't work. 
Having owned a few 73 Imperials, I can tell they are 28" wide, and there was no other choice on the Imperial. From 69 on, the 28" core was standard. Before, they could be equipped with either a 26 or 28" core.

In the parts manuals, i read B+C's could have 28" wide radiator cores as well, depending on equipment, options etc.

So if an Imperial radiator core fits a small mopar doesnt necessarily mean its 26" :) or maybe you've only had pre-69 cores?

Ok... so learning from this topic... My '69 Polara wagon, which I had until the mid-80's, had a "towing package", and the H-code 383 auto... and when I took out the radiator to have it re-cored, I learned that it had 4 cores. I don't know what the width was, but I do know that it never ever overheated... Is that an uncommon radiator, or did I just get a special one? I am sure the current Monaco wagon doesn't have that, but I learned that there were a number of things on that car that may not have been "standard". schaefman2010-06-11 15:16:30

Tow package C's came with a 26" rad that was  four core.
My 68 New Yorker has the tow package and the big HD rad.
The tow package was an extra cost option over and above the A/C option which also had the 26" rad but with a 3 core rad.

Do we have  part number for the 4 core radiator that would come in a tow package C-Body in '69?   I can't tell from the radiator listing that was posted, and the ones I can find all seem to have 3 cores...

Thank you... I was torn between that one, and the 2949037, which is the one for the 440 with the Max Engine Cooling option... I just wasn't sure which they would use, and when I actually had the car, it didn't matter what the part number was, since I already had the radiator. Also, it was 25 years ago, and I am not likely to have remembered anyway.
