    No fun in having anything if you can't enjoy the ride. Keeps the hood closed and let the rest speak for itself;)

    If they're that good, you don't need to worry about a warranty. :)

    I was planning on eventually getting a Walker Radiator for my 32 Ford coupe project, but when I read this post I thought I was out of luck. I searched the internet for anyone who might have what I needed in stock and found one at Speedway Motors. I ordered the last one of B-Ac491-2 that they had in stock. It's the Cobra model with A/C and a top center inlet and lower left outlet to go with the 303 Oldsmobile that I'll be using.

    I'm so happy I was able to find this, don't know if we'll ever be able to buy Walker radiators again. Like everyone says this is a very high quality radiator. The fit looks like it will be real good. I will have to trim a little off of the grill shell at the radiator mounting feet area to make it perfect.

    I was unaware Walker was closing until I called to order a radiator last week. I spoke to Travis and he said they were in the process of selling their entire inventory to Speedway, but he was able to pull one off the list and sell it to me at a discounted price! If you really want one, I suggest you call them today, you never know what they might have available to sell you directly before they all go to Speedway.

    Bought a walker in 1988 for a 37 ford, lasted about a month before it started leaking.

    The reason Walker closed was that Vernon was getting old and two of the kids are busy with the NSRA. They sold the company to Alan Johnson. He already makes great products so the quality should still be the same.
