SoCal member Ken Adrianse #129 provided the membership information for obtaining FREE specifications on early Corvettes.

At our November 2007 SACC Tech Session, Jeff Reade mentioned that a 170 degree thermostat would help some C1’s that have overheating problems, but that he has not been able to find one in many years. I have been looking for a 170 degree unit for my C2 for some time (in all the wrong places) and finally did so last week on EBay. GM part number 10220957, Gr.1.246 (AC Delco #131-84) 170 degree thermostat is available at any GM dealer or AC Delco store. The AC Delco outlet that I called sells them for $8.49. My local Chevrolet dealer told me this morning that this part is still listed for 1953-62 Corvettes and retails for about $13.00.
They are packaged in a standard AC Delco box and made in the USA. I thought that some of our SACC members may be interested in this information as hot weather is only a few months away.
