Square Body BBC Radiator ( CU730 ) in a 67-72

Has anybody installed a BBC Square Body radiator in a 1967 - 1972 C10? If so, how did you do it?


I would like to use square body frame mounts, with Tejas Steelworks motor mounts and fan shroud, to swap a LS engine into my C10. I would like to do this combo because it allows the AC to remain in the stock truck LS location.

No one’s tried a 4 core radiator from a BBC Square Body in our trucks? Curious if it will physically fit before dropping the money on one.

It will physically fit in the location, but the lower (outlet hose) comes out straight which interferes with the inner wheel well on a 67-72. Just buy a big block 68-72 radiator and bolt it in.

Thanks for the explanation. I wasn't sure of the difference.

The lower rad hose neck on my 68 big block pickup has an angle in it, obviously to help with the closeness to the frame ordeal...I'm guessing...
