Default Where can I source a radiator

My radiator leaks enough that I want to get a new one. I have had no luck finding a replacement. I want to put a new one in rather than getting this one repaired. Anyone know where I can find one?

The original radiator is not available. If your tanks are OK your best option is the have the radiator recored by a radiator shop.

Yea, I figured as much. What if they arn't good? I'd just have to get one custom built then I guess. How much money should I expect to pay to have mine recored, or one custom built?

The one I just had done for my SP was about $1000. That was using the upper and lower tanks. That was a recore.

Mike H has whay i consider to be a huge improvement for the FC rad.
But its not a bolt in deal,it has a remote top tank (like big trucks and WB's and LXI,LXs) and the later FCs.
It would require some fab work and reworking the hoses.
I'm not sure what needs to be done about the trans cooler.

Try this place for school bus radiators, need your Rad measurements, inlet & outlet size and angle.

Is there a thread on that ? I’m looking at doing my radiator, and more cooling would be nice running in the Southwest during the summer.
