As the weather in many parts of the country begins to cool, we’re reminded that it’s also exceedingly important to keep your Corvette running cool too. If your Corvette is running warmer than normal or it’s just time for a good old-fashioned upgrade, our friends over at Volunteer Vette have all bits you’ll need for the job.
Your engine’s cooling system is a critical part of your Corvette’s overall health. It’s like a high-end timepiece. You must maintain it properly to keep it functioning like it should. Over the years, though, your cooling system can suffer a myriad of issues. You could end up with something as simple as a leaking thermostat housing gasket or a clamp that no longer holds like it used to. On the other hand, you could have a corroded radiator that no longer retains fluid inside where it belongs. Well, no matter what your cooling system needs, Volunteer Vette stocks what you’re looking for.
Each generation’s webpage is neatly broken down into multiple sections based on whatever specific item you may need. Their C1 Cooling system collection contains everything from a $12.99 Hose Clamp Sets to their $1,479.99 restoration radiators. Volunteer’s C2 cooling options build on the C1 content, and also adds peripheral items like fan shrouds, core supports, and complete water pumps.
When we jump to the 3rd generation of Corvette you’ll find 3 sections dedicated to early, mid, and later model C3’s. This ensures that you get the correct item no where your ride falls within that lengthy C3 era.
Upshifting to C4’s and C5’s we begin to see more electrical-type widgets like relays, fan switches, and sending units in addition to staples like hoses and thermostats.
The 6th generation Corvette offered many engine and cooling configurations between 2004 and 2013, and Volunteer Vettes has kept pace. Just check out the various radiator options which complement their selection of water pumps, hoses, and surge tanks, among other items.
