How about a good source to buy one thats not 1200$$. Thats crazy. I could never bring myself to pay 1200 for a rad. I mean it looks a nice piece but for that kinda money it should come with a gold nugget!!!!

A used one will run you $600 and you might have to pay to record it

300 I can do 1200 just have #'s on it. Its going to be a very nice car when done but its for me to drive and have fun maybe a cruise in on sat. night. If i was trying to build a 100 point car well i still would have a hard time shelling out 1200$$$$ LJ out!!!!!

If you want "cheap" and "available", drive a Chevy and run with the pack.
It costs money to be the lead dog.

A brand new radiator will cool the best compared to a used unit, how much is your motor worth? I bet more than the $600 difference, it's cheap insurance if you ask me

the part# is 2898047 for a gtx or r/t with a 440 26" radiator




I thought it took the 2898048?

Or is that just with the Hemi or a 4-speed or a performance axle package?

so anyone know what the 047 radiator was listed for? My '68 road runner with A/C had a "047" radiator with room for a condensor on the front side

Are 492 and 358 axle packages?

My '68 rr is a 383, A/C, auto with a 3.23 Suregrip which for sure isn't a performance axle package even with Suregrip

Seems that the original 047 radiator was correct for my road runner

Larry did you post what trans and axle package you have so you get or look for the correct radiator. I know that 047 are just as much repo wise but easier to find used
