Transmission Cooler

Does anyone have knowledge of what brand Transmission Cooler will mount up and work well in a 65 GTO. The Transmission is a Turbo 400. When I purchased the car it had a Transmission Cooler mounted haphazardly to the Core Support in front of the Radiator. I want to install a new Cooler as the one that came with the car is old and looks pretty rough. The Radiator in the car is a Four Core A/C radiator for a manual shift car.

Go online and check out the vendors....especially trailer oriented places. These coolers are used on vehicles that tow a lot, etc. I think they are available at NAPA, etc. Pretty generic. They work well.

i am using an inline tube type cooler , seems to do the trick and you can mount anywhere there is airflow.

Brian, Are you using that cooler INSTEAD of, or in ADDITION to the one in the radiator? Thanks, Eric

that trans cooler with rubber hoses below the bumper is an accident waiting to happen. you catch the right kind of road debris and a leak will empty the trans before you can stop.
