Make sure your Corvette stays as cool as possible during these dog days of summer with a 1963-1982 Corvette Aluminum Radiator, available exclusively at Zip. Better cooling….less expensive than a comparable copper & brass radiator…and made in the USA! There is finally a better cooling solution for your 1963-1982 Corvette! Zip Corvette has contracted with one of our premium radiator suppliers to produce a replacement aluminum radiator for C2 & C3 Corvettes, minus the price tag normally associated with custom built aluminum radiators.
These Corvette Parts are 100% made in the USA - completely manufactured and assembled right here in the United States. Along with that comes the quality that you would expect from a company that takes pride in turning out Corvette radiators. Each radiator begins life as an aluminum core with two 1″ wide cooling tubes. This configuration more than doubles the cooling capacity by increasing the “tube to fin” contact area. This can only be achieved with an aluminum radiator since the aluminum material does not dramatically affect the radiators weight. Tanks are fabricated aluminum and inlet/outlets are correctly configured for a drop-in installation. Each core is then brazed in a controlled atmosphere furnace, which eliminates the need for epoxy; ensuring leak free, trouble free service for many years to come.
Zip is pleased to offer these high-quality aluminum radiators for all C2 & C3 Corvettes. Don’t settle for copper/brass replacements when your Corvette could benefit from the advantages of an aluminum radiator.
To maintain your Corvette’s originality – consider painting your new aluminum radiator black for an OEM finish.
Previously unavailable for many years, Zip now offers a multi-piece, completely assembled, correct reproduction 1963-1965 Corvette Metal Radiator Shroud for your C2. Don’t settle for a fiberglass version – restore the originality and cooling efficiency of your classic Corvette. Fits all 1963-1965 models except 1965 396ci. Includes “cats paw” die marks as original and a chassis black finish. Made in the USA.
One of the biggest frustrations you may face during a restoration project is unavailable Corvette Parts. But with more than 25,000 parts and accessories available, Zip has what you need to get your Corvette back to its glory days. We’re real people, selling real parts, in real time!

Corvettes are highly susceptible to front end damage or collisions, therefore Zip has added several new reproduction Corvette Parts that have been previously discontinued by GM. All are needed to properly repair the front end of your Corvette both for aesthetics and proper cooling efficiencies. These new 1984-1996 C4 Corvette Front End Parts are just a few of several new reproduction parts that are now available from Zip.
On many early model C4 Corvettes, the Air Intake Radiator Lower Baffle is often seriously damaged or in the worst cases, missing all together due to parking lot stops or curbs. Not having the radiator lower baffle can inhibit your Corvette’s cooling system from cooling the engine properly by not directing airflow through the radiator. This reproduction radiator lower air baffle, also sometimes called a radiator duct, is necessary to keep your engine at the correct operating temperature. Fits 1985-1989 Corvettes only.
Often the casualty of concrete parking stops or curbs, it’s not uncommon for a C4 to be missing the Corvette Lower Valance Panel/Air Deflector. This C4 Corvette item is critical for keeping your Corvette operating at normal temperatures by helping to direct air into the radiator for efficient cooling. Fits all 1984-1989 Corvettes.
The Corvette Lower Valance Panel/Air Deflector Brace attaches to the radiator lower air baffle in the middle to give support to the front air deflector. If your car’s brace is missing, it can raise the temperature of the engine significantly. This deflector brace is a reproduction of the 1986 and later model which was engineered to be heavier than the flimsy 1984-1985 style braces. Fits all 1984-1990 Corvettes.
The Corvette Lower Air Dam Center Retainer is an important part to support and strengthen the lower plastic baffle. Replacing this retainer with this new reproduction insures the air baffle is properly supported and helps to insure cool air is properly directed into your early C4 Corvette. Fits all 1984-1996 Corvettes.
