Need to replace my 73 Radiator
#1
Looks like I need to replace my Radiator.. Would you suggest looking going with an aluminum replacement or see if I can find one in a scrap yard?

The scrap yard is almost certainly a dead end for a radiator. Murray builds a 3 row that appears to be close to original. It is $226 from O'Reilly's. Chuck

...especially if you are looking for a stock-like replacement.

+ 3 What they said! I have the factory heavy duty 351/ 429 W AC. No problems with cooling at all. I have made six hard passes at the track back to back with no overheating issues,also is great in traffic, and it has been in the 100+ this summer.

My Griffin was supposed to be a direct replacement..............NOT, the bottom hose neck was angle 45 degrees so I removed it and welded in straight. All is good now but watch for aftermarket "direct replacement" is all I'm sayin

I got a northern brand off of e-bay for less than summit sells their in house brand for our cars. (summit rads are northern brand) It works, the the trans line fittings do not swap over. I had to buy a couple of adapters.

Totalled , thats what i was looking into also beacause of the stock appearance. I was gonna paint it black to look more original. How much does that radiator run?
Thanks Kevin

Dont you guys have the shop right for change the panel of the Rad but keep the upper part and structure??... Here in Uruguay i know some qualified shops do that kinda job and even if i still never needed to, that was my plan when my Rad broke down...
