Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop Purchases Walker Radiator Works

The company will relocate to Gadsden, Alabama.


Tradition is not only preservation of the past but also the focus going forward toward the future. With plans of continuing an iconic product recognized as the leader in copper and brass cooling systems, Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop has acquired the tooling, equipment, and proprietary manufacturing techniques from Walker Radiator Works and will move forward as Johnson’s Radiator Works. 


America’s #1 Street Rod radiator will continue to live on as a USA made product right here in Gadsden, Alabama. Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop is committed to continuing the same standard of excellence set forth as each radiator will continue using the finest quality materials available.

While it will take some time to get relocated and set up running at full capacity, the product line focus will be continuing on the legacy of Walker Radiator Works as well as developing into other markets for later model car and truck applications. While we are not taking orders at this time, please contact us with your radiator needs to help shape the product line going forward.
