Spectra Radiators

Just picked one of these up from NAPA today for my Chevy. Was surprised to see it was clearly labeled "Made in Canada".

I see they also make them to fit some MB's. Has anyone put in their their MB yet?

Never heard of them. But you can never go wrong with a Behr or Nissens unit.

I guess Spectra is big in the domestic car scene. Must do a big business in the import car world too.

Mine is a Spectra. I replaced it a few months ago. No problems through the hottest time of the year. Seems like I remember it being made in China though? I can't remember... Maybe it was Canada?

I did not feel like forking out the additional $100 for the BEHR. However, I do remember the BEHR being thicker through the core when I removed the original one. Same amount of rows as the Spectra. But, the rows were larger in the BEHR. Still....... NO problems whatsoever with the Spectra and it has yet to get above 80-90C on 100 degree days.
