Nestled in Northeast Georgia, is a small company called AutoRad, LLC. This company fabricates high quality aluminum radiators for street rods and muscle cars. What started out as a hobby over ten years ago has turned into a full-time enterprise. James Walker, owner, has worked in the cooling industry for over 19 years at a worldwide leader manufacturer in thermal management. He has seen how radiators are built from scratch and has seen the advances in radiator design. He didn¹t like the quality of the radiators that were out there and knew he could make a craftsmanship radiator with high performance  cooling, and that¹s exactly what he did. With this background behind him, he knew that aluminum radiators are stronger, lighter and will last longer than a copper/brass radiator. One inherent design flaw with a copper/brass radiator is the way they are “held together”. The tubes, fins, and headers are bonded together with solder. Over time, the solder joints will deteriorate because of the dissimilar metals. This will result in an array of problems. The core will lose efficiency from the deterioration of tube to fin joint. The core will develop leaks from deterioration of tube to header joints. These are just a few of the problems  with copper/brass radiators. Aluminum cores do not suffer these problems because they are furnace brazed and the entire core becomes one solid material. Some companies use very dated oven process and therefore need an epoxy to cover the leaks. AutoRad radiators are hand made and our cores are vacuum brazed with no epoxy. Aluminum cores can use larger tubes, which are more efficient because they are thicker and can be formed into larger sizes. AutoRad¹s cores are 2 rows­ 1” cores. We also make a high performance core (1 row of 2” tubes) for the high-powered engines. Simply put, initial efficiency could be about equal but as time goes on the aluminum radiator will outperform the copper/brass unit. We make a variety of radiators for the street rod cars & trucks as well as Chevy, Ford & Mopars for the muscle cars.  We offer a 55-57 Chevy assembly, which includes the radiator, cradle, shroud, and fan, overflow tank and side and bottom panels. We can also make those hard to find customs. Our radiators are built per the customers' needs. We have just come out with our newest radiator ­ 67-69 Camaro radiator and core support. On this radiator we offer 40% more surface area than a stock radiator and 20% more surface area than most replacement radiators for superior cooling for even the big horsepower engines. Our customers have been our best advertisement. Our radiators can be found in many of the premier rod shops in the country. We have dealers all over the US and Canada. What makes our radiators stand out from the rest? Well, one look is all you need. The craftsmanship that goes into these radiators is outstanding. We back our radiators 100%. We have had customers that have had our competitor’s  radiators and when they put ours in, they are pleased to have their cooling problems disappear. One comment we always hear is, “I wish I would have seen your radiator before I bought...” We also offer the shroud, fan, ac condenser and trans cooler for a complete package.
