real tight budget

I've gone to the wrecking yard with a tape measure and found good, new, rebuilt radiators for $ 40 that have lasted several years, for engine swaps.I made new brackets and found a shroud that worked. It takes lots of measurements to find the right shroud.

I bought a Champion rad, alum shroud, and 2 14 in fans for $369, 3 core. A friend of mine bought 1 for his 31 Ford too. I think mine come from Ledfoot racing. I googled champion rad and come up with them. Rad fit perfect, works great.
