I've seen some on cars that look close to original style, and some that don't.

Who sells radiators for our classics?

Glen-Ray Radiator out of Wausau, WI has the best but I am sure you mean aftermarket not reproduction.

I put an OER from Classic Industries in my 70' Charger last summer. Looks just like the OEM factory radiator but it just doesn't have the tank numbers stamped on top. Everything bolted right up as needed & hose location were in the correct positions as well. My car also will now idle all day in Woodward traffic and not overheat. I am happy with it so far.

I had a complete custom radiator made for my 70' Challenger to support the 1000 HP on the street. It has a custom made shroud & dual electric fans incorporated in it. I had them try to keep the Mopar look & had them add the -20 weld bungs for the AN fittings for the upper & lower hosed to keep with my "race car but looking kind of stock theme".

That doesn't look anything like a factory radiator. To the OP, if you want one that look just like the original, call Glen Ray, but I'm not sure if they make all of the different styles that Chrysler used.

He never said it was...

But agreed on vendor Glen-Ray, but expect to spend $$$$ if the best is what you want

Yes, I never said 100% correct. the rad in my Challenger isn't 100% correct I was just going for some thing close. As mentioned Glen Ray is the source for the 100 factory look but not everyone can spend $1500.00 on just a radiator.

At one time US radiator had some radiators that looked pretty good. I don`t know if that has changed or not since it was many years ago I bought one from them. http://www.usradiator.com/dodge-challenger-1970-72-v8-bb-radiator.html

Glen Ray for sure. They can even date stamp it if you want it to look original to your car. The 956 one he did for my Hemi Challenger years back ran suuper cool. I think it was over a grand IIRC, but that was 12 years ago.

It's not a show car, just a survivor/driver. I don't like the flat topped style like 6PKRTSE posted.

One Magnum I had had one, not sure where it came from.

I'll try these listed, thanks.

You said it looks JUST LIKE the OEM radiator. There are other companies besides Glen Ray that make a product that is a whole lot closer to OEM than that radiator.

I was just showing the rad in my Challenger as another option or comparison. The rad in my Charger is much closer to OEM.

Now that's more like it, I am sure that is much closer to what he was wanting/ asking about than the other. That rad looks close enough that most people won't notice the lack of numbers. Especially for a driver, and they can be had for about the same money.

Are you looking for ribs in a square top? or are you asking about a bubble top (aka round top) tank?

US Radiator has some options including Aluminum that look pretty close to OEM, 22 and 26 inch with 20% and 40% increased cooling options.

If you want a CORRECT reproduction Glen-Ray isnt just the best choice, they are the ONLY choice. They can also restore your original radiator as well as building you a custom version with extra cooling capacity.
