Default Green antifreeze?

Who still sells the good old green phosphate antifreeze?

I have only looked at wall-mart so far and no luck.

PS: This is for my 75 Chevy truck so I am only interested in green coolant.

I think most places still sell the old green stuff.

Meijer and Autozone sell it around here, for sure.

If you can't find any, you could still use one of those new universal "works with any color" products.

Thanks Jon.
Looks like I will have to look at AZ, Freds and Advance for pricing.

My 75 truck has no aluminum parts and the green phosphate antifreeze only gets changes every 10 tears.
The truck still has the original radiator and lower heater hose.

Phosphate? You mean Glycol?

Everyone here sells it.

Just trying to find the best price on Green antifreeze.

Should have said Green Antifreeze with inorganic anti rust package.

“Conventional antifreeze is formulated with inhibitors composed of neutralized inorganic acids, such as phosphates and silicates, to protect a cooling system against rust and corrosion. Over time, however, inorganic inhibitors deplete and may no longer provide maximum cooling system protection. This is why it is generally recommended that conventional coolants be changed every 2 years or 24,000 miles.”

That was taken from
