Transpro Completes Sale of Heavy Duty OEM Business to Modine Manufacturing

Wednesday March 2

NEW HAVEN, Conn.--March 2, 2005--Transpro, Inc. (AMEX: TPR) today announced that
it has completed the previously announced sale of its heavy duty OEM business to
Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE: MOD) for $17 million in cash. The heavy duty
OEM business generated net sales of approximately $50 million in 2004. The
Company will use the proceeds from the sale primarily to pay down debt. As a
result of this transaction, Transpro expects to report a one-time gain of
approximately $6 million in the first quarter of 2005.

As previously announced, the sale of Transpro's heavy duty OEM business was
agreed to in connection with the proposed merger of Modine's aftermarket
business, debt free, into Transpro. The parties intend to close the merger
during the second quarter of 2005, subject to customary conditions, including
the approval of Transpro's shareholders.

"The sale of our heavy duty OEM business to Modine marks an important milestone
for Transpro," said Charles E. Johnson, President and CEO of Transpro, Inc.
"With this event we are one step closer to completing a set of transforming
transactions, through which we will concentrate our business efforts on our
aftermarket business, enhance our leadership position in the heat transfer
aftermarket business, increase our geographic and product scope, and attain the
financial strength and flexibility we need to succeed in today's competitive

Mr. Johnson concluded, "The Company's OEM Business Unit, originally known as G&O
Manufacturing Company, has been in operation since 1915 and has been a leader
over the years in heavy duty heat transfer product design and service to its
customers. The marketplace it serves has become highly concentrated on a global
basis, and this deal with Modine will provide a home for this operation,
including its primary Jackson, Mississippi plant, which has a long- term track
record of success. We wish all our Jackson associates the very best of success
and thank them for their long service to Transpro and its precedent companies."
