Established in June 1982 as a traditional radiator shop, Cap-A-Radiator (as it is still known to its local customers) has specialized in radiators, heater cores and air-conditioning. Since 2000 we have been pushing more and more into the classic car field. This push has been made by the owner and operator Bill Carberry. Bill has been in the old car hobby since he was a teenager. He got his first car (a 54 Chevy BelAir) when he was 16 years old. His second car was a 59 Ford Galaxie. He still owns both of these cars to this day. Bills love of old cars has made it a pleasurable transition from traditional radiator shop to a specialty shop concentrating on the needs of classic car and truck enthusiasts when it comes to cooling and heating their classic vehicles.
  In August 2018 we moved into a larger building only 1/2 mile east on the same road in order to be able to service more classic cars and "everyday" cars. We were the only full service radiator shop in all of Nassau County. But in July of 2023 we moved again to Suffolk County, only 15 miles east and joined with Acme Radiator. Established in 1949, Acme Radiator is the regions leader in heavy duty and industrial radiators. In partnering with Bill and his classic and antique experience and inventory, Acme Radiator now has all of your cooling system needs covered.
