Flex-a-lite Makes Engine-swaps in ’64-’69 Mustangs Easier with its New Aluminum Radiator Configuration

We’ve offered the Flex-a-fit® aluminum radiator for both ’64-’66 and ’67-’69 Mustangs for quite some time. We’ve now expanded this line of direct-fit radiators to accommodate the popular 5.0-liter engine swaps (based on the ‘86-’93 5.0-liter engines).

The original Flex-a-fit radiator for this application positioned both the inlet and outlet on the passenger side, just like the original. However, many people swap later-model engine into these popular pony car which requires the outlet to be on the driver side. The Flex-a-fit radiators are available both with and without a Flex-a-lite 3,000 cfm electric fan (part #160) pre-mounted from the factory.

Part Numbers:

50064              Radiator only – ‘64-‘66 Mustang, passenger side inlet & oulet

50164             Radiator with electric fan – ‘64-‘66 Mustang, passenger side inlet & outlet

50064R1         Radiator only – ‘64-‘66 Mustang, driver side outlet & passenger side inlet

Flex-a-fit radiators are manufactured in the U.S. with a 2-row, all-aluminum core hand welded to the side tanks with patented “T” channels to dissipate heat more efficiently. Radiator mounting brackets are included for direct bolt-in fit to the stock location, and the “T” Channels provide a more secure attachment for these mounting brackets. The inlet is 1 ½ inches in diameter, and the outlet is 1 ¾ inches. Both are 2 ½ inch long.

Flex-a-lite now offers over 130 Flex-a-fit radiator applications, including ’64-’66, ’67-’69 and ’79-’93 Mustangs. You can also custom order a radiator, using easy-to-follow order forms at www.flex-a-lite.com/auto/html/howtoradiator.html. Customers can choose from eight radiator core sizes as the start of their radiator, and custom configuration options provide flexibility in the location, size and angle of the inlet and outlet. Other options include single- or dual-pass, threaded bung location(s) and filler neck location and angle.
