Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop Acquires Walker Radiator Works

Jul 26, 2021

Alabama-based 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, the company announced.

“America’s [number one] street rod radiator will continue to live on as a USA-made product right here in Gadsden, Alabama,” the company said in a statement announcing the acquisition. “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.”

Yet to be relocated and running at full capacity, the product line focus will be continuing the legacy of Walker Radiator Works, the company said, as well as developing into other markets for later model car and truck applications. The company is not currently taking orders at this time.
