71 radiator
« on: January 16, 2014, 10:27:44 PM »
My recently purchased 71 which sat for about 25 years in a garage wasn't drained for its long nap.  Local shop quoted me $480.00 to recore the FOMOCO rad.  So I took my dimensions to the wrecking yard and ended up with a 1984 Mazda B2000 truck rad.  It is slightly shorter and wider but very close.  :)
