Flex-A-Lite Introduces The Direct-Fit Radiator For C3 Corvette

Flex-a-Lite has made a name for themselves by offering some of the highest-quality engine cooling components available to the automotive aftermarket. They’ve jsut released a Direct-Fit aluminum radiator for the classic 3rd-generation Corvette (’68-82).

Official Release:

Flex-a-lite Introduces Direct-fit Flex-a-Fit Aluminum Radiators for ’68-’82 Corvettes

Flex-a-lite is continuing the expansion of its direct-fit Flex-a-fit aluminum radiators, now providing a radiator and electric-fan combo for the ’68-’82 Corvettes. The new radiator and fan combination bolts in without any drilling or cutting, requiring only approximately four hours for installation. 

These new applications makes it easy to install a performance cooling radiator and electric fan, reducing the operating temperature by up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit while freeing up power to the rear wheels and increasing fuel economy. The new radiator is available with or without a Flex-a-lite electric fan (part #180) which moves 3,300 cfm of airflow. The electric fan comes mounted on the radiator from the factory.

For automatic-transmission cars, an optional direct-fit transmission cooler kit mounts a Flex-a-lite Translife cooler to the front of the new radiator.
