Default Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I have a similar problem with my 39. I traveled to Back to the Fifties this past weekend, about a 300 mile trip one way. After arriving I had to add about 2 quarts of water. Mine is an open system with no pressure cap. Coming back, same story. My radiator is original and I was thinking that it probably can't candle the flow anymore. I was generally running around 23-2500 rpm. By the way, I averaged 18mpg. Also I run water with no anti-freeze.
