This very custom but stock look hood support cross brace solves the problem of how to modify your car when running a big block. As the 6-cylinder radiator on a stock 1957 has the inlet on the left side of the radiator the original hood cross brace does not have a provision for running a center inlet top tank radiator, which means you can't move your V8 radiator to the 6-cylinder position to gain more room unless you cut the stock one or cut the radiator upper bar. Using this custom cross brace that problem is solved. It has been notched so you can run a 1955-1956 6-cylinder position radiator or your 1957 V8 radiator moved with our # 11236 conversion brackets without cutting. Perfect for big block conversions as well as small blocks with long waterpumps or any application where you want to run a 6-cylinder position radiator. And the best part is it looks like GM put it there. Danchuk # 18304 will work on any 1957 classic Chevy.
