This company advertises a Made In USA aluminum radiator. I need a new one for my '61 and this seems like a viable route.

I can't find much feedback on them. Does anyone have direct experience with them?

Thank you,

Kyle

I believe they have an ebay store as well. Several links to click on.

If you deal with them pleas come back and let us know how things go....quality? Price? Service?..........thanks

Thank you for the reply. I was hoping someone had direct experience with them in our humble little forum here. I found them on ebay and googled them as well. I just wasn't finding a lot of reviews or 'community' chatter about them as a retailer. I am worried about ordering something sight unseen.

Kyle, not being a smarty but someone has to be the first!
My take is it at least appears to be what it says but customer service, and quality of product always comes into play. As I remember, a lot of vendors out there sale radiators made basically by one or two major operations. I have bought from Griffin, Walker Radiator and one in Upstate N.Y. Google USRadiators. They make a LOT of the ones vendors sale and you can order direct...or use to. They have a good site and lots of info so have a cold Pepsi handy.
But the Brice Thomas seems to be, from what I read, actually making them themselves. Maybe they are competitive.

Let us know what you decide...... always looking for the good companies to spend my money with.

I bit the bullet yesterday and ordered a radiator. I went with Champion, they are imported but at $175 it leaves me a large chunk of my $500 summer budget left to address some other issues. I didn't find definitive information on Bryce Thomas and in no way am knocking their product which seems stellar, but at $325 the price difference was a fairly large deciding factor.

I will keep you all posted as to the progress, I should have it by the weekend and I can go look at the old girl and see what else I need for this project.

Kyle, I have been very pleased with my Walker radiator in my 50 coupe....and a nice cap came with it.
