I use Evans Waterless Coolant in my stock 55 Chevy 265! It doesn't cool as efficiently as 50/50 anti freeze, so it runs a little hotter, but it boils at 375f, so no over heating.

I wouldn't waste my money on Snake Oil like Evans. A properly designed cooling system works just fine with 50/50 antifreeze/water combination.

Evans actually works really well. Used it in my dirt bike (300KTM) for years and never had a over heating issue. It is used in the race boats down in Brazil since the ocean water temp was so high it could not cool the motors.
The down side to using Evans is if you get a leak you CANNOT add water to top off your system. Evans turns to jelly-o when water is added.

That makes no sense to me. The ocean is much cooler than a radiator.

Weird, I wonder what it's made of.

No one mentioned the most important factor, it won't rust your engine cooling jackets. If you have a classic car, you may be worried about rust on something 30+ years old.

Evans coolant is designed to run at a pressure greater than 20 lbs. which is very high and only new aluminuuuum rads can live with. also it needs a very high flow [50 gallons per minute+] water pump to help create pressure.
a 1955 stock rad will barley live at 7 lbs.
same goes for the pink RV type anti-freeze. freeze protection is good to 20 below straight. however it will not cool.
as said, go back to a clean system, good cap and stat and 50/50 [or less AF if your low temps allow]
