    what is wrong with your old radiator? If the tanks are still in good shape there should be no reason to have to pay for a new radiator which will be a radiator with old tanks, new or rebuilt core, new paint. I got mine fixed for less than $100 and several cores were busted. At the most you would have to pay $250 to get a shop to recore your old radiator. I couldn't force myself to pay nearly $400 for a radiator.

    yeah looks like you will need a "new" radiator. When i had the core from mine rebuilt it was b/c of the aux. tranny cooler too. I fixed the leaks in the radiator and installed a B&M super cooler and mounted to the metal behind the grill and ditched those stupid plastic things. I priced one from a local radiator distributor for $389 and $349 from advance auto parts.
