ACP OE-Style Type 379 Performance Aluminum 24" 2-Row MaxCore Radiator for 1970 Mustangs with Air Conditioning and a 302 or 351 V8 Engine and all 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1970 Mustangs with a 390 or 428 V8 Engine.

When you have a lot of power under the hood of your 1967-1970 V8 Mustang, things tend to get hot. Keep your pony running cool with this ACP OE-Style Type 379 Performance Aluminum 2-Row MaxCore Radiator from CJ Pony Parts! ACP designed this MaxCore radiator to be an OE style radiator, but modernized it with an aluminum construction that will cool your Mustangs engine more efficiently than radiators made from copper and brass.

ACP MaxCore Radiator FM-ER207 Features:
- Direct OE Style Fit
- Billet Filler Neck
- Aluminum Construction
- 2-Rows of 1-1/4” Tubes
- Integrated Transmission cooler for Automatic Transmissions
- OEM Style Brass Petcock for Easy Draining

This MaxCore radiator from ACP has been constructed from aluminum using two-rows of 1-1/4” wide tubing that efficiently cool your V8 engine. The top and bottom tanks are styled after the tanks of the original V8 radiator on your classic Mustang and feature an OEM style brass petcock that allows for easier draining of the coolant. ACP even includes an integrated transmission cooler on the MaxCore radiator for Mustangs with an automatic transmission. With no fabrication or additional drilling needed, this radiator will simply mount in the same location as your old radiator for an OE style fit.

The idea of creating a radiator from aluminum was based on using more tubes that were wider, and lowering the height of the fins. This would eliminate dead space between the tubes. The standard aluminum radiator tube width is 1”, so a typical 2-row aluminum radiator has a 2” tube-to-fin contact area per row. Compared to the typical 4-row copper radiators which had a 1.7” tube-to-fin contact area. So ACP decided to kick it up a notch by making the tubes in their 2-row MaxCore radiator 1-1/4” wide creating a 2-1/2” tube-to-fin contact area. Greatly exceeding the performance of a copper 4-row design.

Vehicle Fitment

This product will fit the following Mustang years:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cooling perf, but thicker than stock unit I put this unit in my '68 Mustang convertible with a 390 cid V-8 to combat the Central Texas heat. It has performed better than expected and my temp gauge does not even budge in 100F heat/humidity while stuck in stop & go traffic. I can't say enough about the efficiency of this radiator. The 1.25" tubes deliver as promised. As a previous reviewer pointed out, it is thicker than the stock unit. This isn't obvious from looking at it, but it is evident after installation when your stock fan does not have enough room and needs to be changed/adjusted. The unit is a full 3" thick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NICE PART BUT WITH FIT ISSSUES This is a really nicely made part, and I'm sure it would solve most any cooling problem. However, I was looking for a cooling upgrade that would fit a 1967 Mustang 390 GT without modification. This radiator is a full 3" thick -- not enough clearance for my standard clutch fan. The spec. In the write-up for the radiator says it's 2 5/8" -- would already be tight for my car. (The written spec. Needs correction.) This would be a great radiator for a powered-up custom or if intending to use electric fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome radiator I was having issues cooling my 40 over 351 Cleveland stroked to almost 428ci. I was using a stock 3 core radiator with dual 10" fans on a aluminum radiator shroud and it would run 200-210 degrees. It is now running 180-185 on a 98 degree day, and I beat on her a little and it didn't even get to 190 and she came back down right away. Well worth the money.

Asked by: Jeff70
Just make sure your engine hose outlets are on the same sides as the radiator.

I am having some issues with overheating and looking to do a major upgrade. Is this Radiator something you recommend and will it fit in my 1967 coupe with a 289 V8

Asked by: goody734
Try part number RADA33. You should diagnose the overheating problem so as to not replace unneeded parts.

This was recommended for my 1966 Mustang with 330 HP crate engine. Know there will be minor mods needed. Is there a shroud recommendation for this? Nervous about only 2 rows, 3 rows available? Any need go 3? With HP engine and Air Cond.

Asked by: AGVMLM
The advice offered by rk is the best. This radiator is a 379 type which is 24” wide and the radiator core support in your ‘66 Mustang is designed for a 20” wide radiator. Any cooling advantage offered by a 24” wide radiator would be blocked by the restricted air flow through a 20” wide opening.  The 379 radiator’s lower outlet is located on the (U.S.) left drivers side and the typical 331” Windsor’s water pump inlet is located on the right or passengers side which isn’t compatible.  The 379 type radiators in ‘67-‘70 Mustangs are typically held in place by clamp style mounting brackets on the top and bottom of the radiator. The smaller radiators use screws to mount to the core support.  3 row core aluminum radiators are available but due to the high thermal transfer efficiency of alloy radiators, 2 row radiators will work fine for most applications. The manufacturer can provide you with the horsepower cooling capacity for the different core thicknesses available. Just remember that as the thickness of the core increases, so does the restriction of air flow through the radiator. ALWAYS use a fan shroud and fan(s) sized for your application.  30 years ago aluminum radiators weren’t commonly available so I bought a 379 type, 24” wide copper/brass radiator with a 4 row core along with a NOS Ford fan shroud for my ‘70 Mach 1 with a 351C that I extensively modified for street/strip racing. Using a Ford Motorsports underdrive aluminum pulley along with the belt driven steel fan it has cooled the estimated 550 horsepower Cleveland just fine. But with modern technology engine cooling so affordable and readily available, it’s time for an upgrade to a 379-2 row core aluminum radiator rated for 600 horsepower and a compatible Spal electric fan/shroud combination. It frees up horsepower by taking the fan drag off the engine and weighs considerably less than the old cooling system. Technology is our friend !!!
