I'm in need of a radiator for my 72 GT. If anyone has one for sale and it's in working condition could you please let me know? I'm located in Orlando Fl. Thanks.

No benefit converting to this radiator than just getting the new aluminum ones. I converted my Honda Radiator back to the new GTS one and wish I never messed with it. It didn’t cool well, and that was before you could get direct fit radiators out of aluminum

Which one are you saying you wish you didn’t mess with? Which one didn’t cool well?

The Honda radiator was lousy in my opinion. Prior to reliable fit aluminum radiators, it was a decent option, but several mods and such to make it work. Now that the new correct fit aluminum radiators are available for the GT, it’s a no brainer to go that direction

Are you looking for an original or after market/aluminum

I had mine triple cored at the radiator shop but costs in the neighborhood of $300. I think that the OGTS aluminum one was more back then because it had just come out. For $200 that’s a bargain now. Maybe they’ll get replenished soon🙂.

I wasn't happy with the Honda either. The one I had the one hose diameter was a little smaller and I had to take up the slack with two layers heat shrink tubing over plus the added work to make custom brackets much better to use OGTS
