It seems like most replacement rads are made that way nowadays.
When I built my Nova I bought a replacement from Advance, noticed it was aluminum so wrote NHRA tech and asked since aluminum was not legal at the time. Answer was to wait, and soon after they made aluminum legal. It fit perfect and was inexpensive.

Put one in our Duster This year worked great.

I have a engineered cooling products radiator in my 68 mustang with a 428 cj and it fits very well and the shroud also fits. they also let me pick it up, and check it out for damage and quality.

It's about time for me to buy one for my e-body stocker project. what side of the radiator are you putting the fan ? I'm in the process of doing a trial fit with everything so I can measure how much room I've got.

Merry Christmas everyone

Advance Auto is giving 25% off on radiators right now. An aluminum one for my Firebird is an exact fit for $184.00 before the discount. Merry Christmas.

Brian you should be thinking how do I get my car to 50 / 50. Any weight that far forward will have an adverse effect on balance. My fan is on the engine side of the radiator.

Good luck with your E body project and we hope to see it in 2018 at the races.

I hadn't been thinking in those terms, thanks Larry.
