The 1968 – 1977 Skylark/GS is a timeless platform, especially with the great supply of aftermarket V8 parts for the Buick V8 engine (like aluminum blocks!). Beautiful classic lines and timeless styling make it a staple. That’s amazing considering these cars have been out of production for 45+ years.
The Skylark/HS has a lot of things going for it when it comes to cooling options. For a Buick, you can fit just about any motor and accessory drive, including the Vintage Air and March serpentine systems, without having to get creative with making it all fit.
Regardless if your Buick was an original 350 or 455, this radiator will drop right into your Buick. It will fit with a v-belt, serpentine drive, long water or short water pump: it will fit with ease.
To keep your Buick running extra cool with killer stylking, this Buick radiator uses our 11″ HPX fans. Completely engineered by us with a die formed aluminum housing, these fans were specially engineered by us to deal with your typical modern day problems: lots of horsepower, tight clearances, Vintage Air and the need for killer styling.
They pull over 1500 CFM each and look KILLER doing it. Not only do they move a ton of CFM, they add modern day styling to your hot rod. CFM alone isn’t the whole story. These fans were designed to keep the CFM from falling off when having to pull through thick cores and A/C condensers at the same time.
Many electric fans are living 30 years in the past and can’t handle the horsepower and A/C requirements of today. These fans will bring your ride into the modern day.
To make everything fit with your Buick and billet accessory drive, we specially configure the fans on that model to clear the trouble spots that cause interference problems on big blocks. Typically the power steering pump and the A/C compressor with serpentine systems.
For higher horsepower applications, use our 1000 horsepower capable radiator, part number 9161-BADASS-BUI.

Like all of our radiators, it’s made in the USA. We guarantee you’ll think it’s sexy and guarantee it to cool your car with ease. And of course our lifetime warranty on everything: radiator and fans.
For fan control, use our RH-02 Wiring Harness. It allows you to run the fans at both and a low speed versus just an ON/OFF setting.
The RH-02 Wiring Harness is also great for v-belt cars with lower powered alternators. It will make sure your alternator isn’t hammered hard when the high powered fans go to work to cool your engine down.
