Try Speedway in Nebraska, they are good people to deal with and reasonable prices.

If you have the money there is a guy in Phoenix Arizona Named Ron Davis that makes the best radiators I have ever seen. I cant remember the number but it should be in information.

Ron Davis

I bought a 32 chopped radiator from speedway( aluminum) and it was made by Ron Davis radiator. It is very well made and cools really well. They make a lot of NASCAR's radiators. They have a site on the web.......Lash

If you want an aluminum radiator, one of the best places to get it is through Dick Z at www.streetrodstuff.com . He has excellent prices, excellent service, and people have been very pleased with the quality of the radiator. It is not a Griffin, but in my opinion, just as good without the steep price. Check it out.
