We are in full swing this spring! This year has been our best so far, and we have you to thank! Word of mouth has really helped our small, American owned business and we thank you. This spring we have already attended several events, most recent of which was the first Summit Motorama at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. We toured the grounds, saw some killer cars, and caught up with a few shops we have built projects for. We also spent a lot of time at the autocross, where a car that we sponsored was beating on our radiator non-stop (we love to show people that our set-up can handle everything you can throw at it). Hopefully there will be more opportunities for us to attend events as summer moves in. In the shop, we just completed our line of 1947-1954 Chevrolet & GMC Pickup & Suburban radiators. As with all of our radiators, these are a drop in upgrade, and can be set up for stock or custom swaps at no additional charge. You can read more about these radiators, as well as purchase them HERE.
Things have been busy as usual here at RnD Fabrication. We just returned from our first vacation / closure in 5 years! We took the guys on a little vacation and also toured some of our supplier's shops, and also visited a few of our frequent customers' shops. We have a few more radiators coming out, including the 1947-1954 Chevrolet & GMC pickup trucks. These will be a drop in upgrade, and can be set up for stock or custom swaps. We will also be attending several events this Spring & Summer, including some ASCS and Goodguys events. Look for updates on where you can see us!
More lines launched! We have just released our 1955-1956 Ford Crown Vic Radiators! Available for the 55-56 models, and we can build them for any engine combo including LS Swaps.
Another line launched! We have just released our 1967-1976 Dodge / Plymouth Mopar A-Body Radiators! Available for the Dodge/ Plymouth Early Barracuda, Dart, Duster, Demon, Scamp and Dart Sport with V8 Motors and LS Swaps. We'd like to thank Eric Wracker for his help in prototyping this radiator. Some of you may recognize his car, competing for Muscle Car Of The Year award (MCOTY) and also having been in Popular Hot Rodding Magazine!
Welcome to Summer! Although the weather has been cooler down here this year, things are heating up in the shop! We just released our line of G-Body Radiators, and are just about to release our line of 1968-1974 Nova Radiators! We also launched our line of RnD Fabrication Swag, with T-shirts and stickers now available. We will be adding more apparel to our line-up over the next few months, so be sure to keep checking back for updates.
For upcoming events, be sure to look for us at the Run To Music City pro-touring races held in Nashville, TN on July 5, 6 and 7. We will be wearing our RnD Fabrication shirts, so be sure to look fur us and come say hi! For more information on the event, hotels, etc., check out American Street Car Series' website HERE.
This has been a great spring so far! We have met many customers and friends over the last few months at various events we have been attending (Detroit Speed & Engineering's Southern Slam in Kershaw, SC; Goodguys Nashville Autocross at Titan Stadium; Chevy Nationals in Commerce, GA). We look forward to meeting more of you at future events, especially the American Streetcar Series (http://americanstreetcarseries.com/). We have also been very busy filling orders and working on new prototypes. Over the last 6 weeks, we have built prototypes for the 62-64 Plymouth Belvedere, a 1939 Plymouth, the 2nd generation Nova (68-74 models), the 1950 Ford F1 pickup as well as the G-body. We are also working on more radiators, as well as valve covers, overflow catch cans and other projects.
As usual, we have been very busy over the last few months (which we are truly thankful for). We have been prototyping several new lines that we will be releasing soon, including our G-Body line of bolt-in radiators & conversion radiators. We also discovered that the original F1 Ford radiator we had prototyped turned out to be a non-original setup. As such, we have been diligently working to redesign it to match original mounting and shape, and we hope to have those re-released shortly. A few weeks back, we had the opportunity to attend the DSE Southern Slam at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, SC, to enjoy a weekend of Pro-Touring racing on their road course and their autocross tracks. We got to meet several of our customers in person, and made some new friends as well. Be sure to look for RnD Fabrication at other Pro-Touring racing events throughout the southeast this spring, summer and fall!
Things have been quite busy around the shop over the last few months, and we are just getting around to adding a few long overdue updates. We added pictures of our early C10 and F100 radiators with fan & shroud kits as we had many requests from customers to see those installed. We also launched our line of 1968-1977 A-Body radiators. Click HERE for more information.
We are also working on our lines for the early 1964-1967 A-Body (Chevelle, GTO, Cutlass, Skylark, etc.) as well as the 1966 and earlier Chevrolet pickups. Make sure to check back for more updates.
We just spent a little time updating our website to hopefully make it a little easier to find what you are looking for. We will also be taking more pictures and updating our product pages soon. If you are an existing customer, we would love to see pictures of our products installed. You can email them to us using the link at the bottom of the page, and if we get enough pictures, we can start a gallery!
