    Exclamation Griffin rads...

    Suggest you look elsewhere for your new radiator.
    Griffin has now been entered on my "no fly list".
    Here's my sad tale of what I got for $400.
    This pos is way out of flat. At least 1/2" of twist. So bad it can't be mounted on the core support.
    Called them up.
    First reply: "Send it to Summit and they'll give you a new one".
    2nd: "You modified it with brackets, no warranty". That brought more about the box, the shipping caused it, bs.
    3rd: "Since we won't warranty it, it makes no difference what the cause is. You can try to straighten it or buy another one".
    How would you suggest doing that? A leading question!
    4th: "You can lay it on a flat surface and bend it".
    Sounds like this isn't your first complaint.... Crickets.
    Watch the Chevy boards... you are going to be "famous"��
    I've been made aware that this problem is widespread.
    This is the last of their junk that we'll buy, that's for sure.
    Should have shelled out the real bucks....

    I hate when people get treated like that.
    As far as radiators go, a friend introduced me to Champion radiators some years back. I have them in my 66 Chevelle and my 56 210. My son-in-law has one in his 67 Chevelle wagon. Another friend who has a shop has become a dealer for them.
    I can't afford some of these high priced systems I see advertised.
    Champion radiators are reasonably priced, and just work well.

    ^^ Yep.
    I decided I'd either straighten it out or wad it up.
    Got it straight and am going to use it.
    Next time, if there is one, it'll be someone else.
