Nice. Any idea what the difference is between the two models? Which one for a '96 SS?

That is a Great price, you would almost expect a "1" to be in front of the number in the price. I wonder if that is a mistake on their part...I don't need one but at that price I'd be crazy not to at least order one. The Silla aluminum rads were about twice as much.

Just for shyts and gigs I checked the rads out for a 70 Monte Carlo and a 70's Camaro. Both were either 2 or 3 core and the pricing was still around $65. So maybe their pricing on these is just really cheap....hope the part is not built cheap.

Based on what I saw in the pics.....they both have the transmission cooler but if you look on the left side, only 1 has the engine oil cooler built in. So one could be for the impala with engine oil cooler and the other could be for a 9c1 car or someone running the external oil cooler. But based on my findings with the stock rads, either rad will fit in the car if you wish to add the oil cooler later, you got the internal cooler if you want it. If you don't want to use it, just block off the 2 ports.

================================================== =============


'95 Caprice SS conversion - Bonny Buckets - 96 Column, Shifter and Console - 3.73 Gear and Herter tune - Z/28 Cluster - Blazer OH Console - Green/Pink bushings - Chromed Impala Wheels - Eibach Springs and Bilstein Shocks - Corvette Engine Dress - the list goes on and still more to do...it never ends.

The one with both the tranny cooler and oil cooler is for an SS.
If you have an external engine oil cooler get the other one.

Forgot to mention... this IS the Silla radiator by the way

Sad part is I bought my first one of these a couple months ago off
of Amazon from the same company and paid $150!!!

Great deal Nab! Those are Silla rads. A couple years back, I picked up the 2 row for about $30 more. Has been in since and never had any issues w/ it.

Only thing i see missing is you need to transfer your mounting brackets for the electrical fans, from old RAD to new one, if you have a stock SS....

Nice find Nab !!!

Got mine today - 24 hours after ordering it! LA to San Diego via FedEx for $10. Thanks for the heads up on this OP.

May or may not keep it.

2 issues.

They list 2396AA for all 94 - 96. But only 94 has the nipple to the reservoir. I use a later 96 reservoir and didn't notice in the pic. So their website is not quite correct. I always order for 96 Caprice because so many part houses don't recognize Impala or Roadmaster. Most other replacement radiators are 95 - 95 type without nipple. Really don't like that. I can block it off like previous original but don't like the look.

And the petcock was messed up. I could replace with another but why should I have to.

For the bargain price it is probably excellent value - adequate but somewhat rough soldering in places.

EDIT: Check the link below. The 2395AA (without oil cooler) has the correct side tank without nipple as on stock 95 and 96.

I will contact Shepherd and see what they say.
