AutoRad Radiators offers 1955–57 Chevy radiator assemblies moved forward 1-inch to help solve clearance issues in certain circumstances. This new design still offers all of the key features you’ve come to expect from AutoRad, including high grade .090 all aluminum materials, which provide a stronger, lighter and longer lasting design than typical copper and brass units. Each piece is TIG welded inside and out for a clean, secure weld. All edges are buffed and it’s completed with stainless steel hardware to further enhance its attractive finish. Each unit is custom made for your exact needs and includes radiator, core support, dual 14-inch Maradyne fans, side panels and recovery tank. Additional options include AC condenser, AC hard lines and trans cooler.
Chev’s of the ’40s new Perfect Fit air conditioning systems are model specific and available for Chevy and Ford, and a number of other models and years. The one shown here allows you to retrofit an original, standard, heat-only 1955-56 Chevy sedan with full air conditioning. This unit is engineered specifically to use the original 1955-56 Chevy sedan heater controls, and by adding dash louvers you’ll get powerful air conditioning throughout the entire car, along with heat on the floor and dehumidified defrost. The cool part about this is that the air conditioning and defrost connect to the original defrost diffuser.

Prolong Super Lubricants’ Super Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer is available to help solve lubrication-related problems such as engine noise, oil leaks and oil burning. The oil stabilizer creates a seal around the piston rings to restore compression, slowing down exhaust blow-by and reducing exhaust smoke emissions. Formulated with the company’s exclusive AFMT (Anti-Friction Metal Treatment) technology, it reduces heat and friction to provide cooler-running engines and will maintain viscosity in hot and cold weather. The stabilizer won’t void engine warranties and helps prevent sludge and varnish deposits; it’s effective with gas and diesel engines and is compatible with petroleum or synthetic oils. It’s available in 1-quart and 1-gallon bottles, 5-gallon pails and 55-gallon drums.
Corsa has extended its line of air intakes to include Chrysler 300 and Dodge Challenger, Charger and Magnum vehicles. The air intake increases engine function and performance for a boost in horsepower and features either high-efficiency Pro 5 filters or cutting-edge Donaldson PowerCore filtration technology. The Donaldson PowerCore filter is a 100,000-mile no-maintenance filter that maximizes air flow, removes submicron particulates and outlasts conventional media filters. It directs air through channels that allow clean air to efficiently enter the engine, while trapping particulates in adjacent channels that do not impede airflow. The closed box design of the air intake creates a barrier to engine heat, moisture, dust and debris to improve performance and enhance the life of the filter.

Alloy USA also uses the latest cold spline rolling technology, preventing stress points, which can lead to fracturing common with axles with traditional cut splines.
Speedometer not giving the correct speed? Don’t drop the pan or struggle with locating increasingly scarce internal speedometer gears. California Performance Transmission has the answer. Simply screw the company’s inline adaptor into the transmission’s speedo drive and your speedometer cable to the back of the adaptor. Then use a GPS device or your cell phone, when it registers at 50 mph, read the speed that your car’s speedometer is indicating. CPT will calculate the correction ratio and gear the adaptor correctly and send it your way.
