I have a 68 Fairlane that had the radiator replaced before I purchased it. It's not the standard radiator so I'm looking for the dimensions for this car.
If anyone knows of the size or location, I'm specifically looking for a 3-4 core and shroud to be able to cool this 500+ HP sbf.
Thanks.

Just get one for a big block (390/42
and use a 70 and up water pump that has the lower outlet on the drivers side. I used to have a 4 core radiator in my car then switched to aluminum. It cooled my .060 over windsor just ok but would heat up a little over 200 in traffic, now it hardly breaks 180 with the Griffing Aluminum. The big block rad is like 24" wide by 20" high if i remember correctly.

That looks really nice, especially with the dual fans. Where did you get the fan assembly? How many cores are in this aluminum radiator?

Thanks, The fans came from ramchargers (not sure they're around anymore). The Griffin radiator is a 2 core 1.25" each, rated up to 600hp according to Griffin. It cools better then a 4 core brass radiator.
