Are you looking for ways to upgrade your 1965-1966 V8 Mustang but still keep that classic-looking pony style? Try swapping your factory rad for this OE-Style Type 259 Plus Aluminum 3-Row MaxCore Radiator FM-ER301 by ACP, now available from CJ Pony Parts!

ACP MaxCore Radiator FM-ER301 Features:
- Direct Fit OE Style
- Crafted using premium aluminum
- TIG-welded construction
- Billet Filler Neck
- MaxCore Plus .75" tubes allow expanded flow and improved cooling

This OE-style, direct-fit radiator from ACP was designed specifically for your 1965-1966 Mustang with 289 engine--it's not a universal fit part because your engine isn't just any engine. Your small block V8 was designed to do some heavy lifting, so not just any rad will help keep things cool and running longer! This upgraded radiator was crated with the original Ford rad in mind, so you'll have a classic looking rad with amazing new performance enhancements, like TIG welding and a premium billet filler neck. Your classic Mustang will run cooler than ever before thanks to the expanded .75" tubes in the three rows within this radiator. The larger tubes in the MaxCore Plus line from ACP allow for expanded air flow and overall improved cooling.

An upgraded aluminum radiator like this one from ACP will help ensure that your vintage pony's engine stays cool when running for long periods of time. You'll be able to cruise for longer thanks to the expanded third-row of tubes in this beautiful rad. No more worrying about an overheated engine or stopping every few miles to let things cool down! Order yours today from CJ's!

Is this radiator configured to use the factory 289 fan shroud ?  Meaning can you just attach the shroud to the radiator using the factory style hardware?

Asked by: Edward5150
You would need a 3 row mounting kit. https://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-fan-shroud-mounting-kit-3-row-1965-1966/p/HW1324/
