Radiator upgrade to aluminum

I have seen many of these on the market. My 66 mustang has a 4 core and seems that it has a pin hole in it....losing water. Are the aluminum a better choice for an upgrade. Or should I just stick to the standard style. Just upgraded to aluminum heads and almost together with the assembly.

If cost of new and repair are about the same then go with aluminum.

Re: Radiator upgrade to aluminum

Buy an aluminum radiator from Summit. Get their Summit brand they are made by Northern radiator in Minnesota. They are all welded with no glues or epoxy and a great deal to boot. And btw, they have a billet fill neck.
