It is 100% furnace brazed, which means you will not see any heli-arc welding ensuring your Corvette has a leak free radiator for years to come. The original part number (3155316) is stamped into the top left of the radiator and the date code is just below the part number as original. Made in USA.
Specify serial number when ordering for correct date code. Radiators are date coded based on a production of 1-2 months prior to the assembly date of your Corvette. If you desire a specific date code - please call a Zip Corvette salesperson (1-800-962-9632) to make a specific request.
Dewitts aluminum radiators are warrantied to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as you own the Corvette in which it was originally installed. This warranty is extended only to the first retail purchaser of any such radiator. Proof of purchase must be provided in the way of a sale receipt from DRI or an authorized dealer. If the radiator is used in any racing application this warranty is considered null and void.
Radiators used without an adequate proportion of premium quality antifreeze coolant and distilled water are not covered by this warranty. DRI radiators require a correct proportion of quality coolant, which contains aluminum corrosion inhibitors in the formula and distilled water. All Corvette cooling systems must include a radiator pressure cap with the proper pressure rating. Distilled water and premium antifreeze must be used with all Corvette aluminum radiators!
C2 RadiatorReview by David Reviewed on 9/4/2018
I purchased this DeWitts reproduction aluminum radiator and I must say it looks better than it did in the photos. All things considered it fit like a glove and was not too difficult to install. I had more trouble getting the fan clutch off than I did getting the radiator installed. When it was all done, my car ran cool as it possibly could have. The temperature gauge never went over 200 and when I shut it down after the shake down run, the temp gauge never hit 220 during the heat soak period. I lost about 1 oz of coolant but that is mostly due to an older recovery tank cap and a tad too much coolant. I imagine after the new cap is installed and that the coolant finds its level, no more drips on the floor. It might be a bit more pricey than your run of the mill radiator, but this one is correct and it cools so much better.
