    Hi everyone, I am a new guy who's currently working on a 69 Roadrunner (it is 7.0 L). Now, there is a problem with its cooling, as radiator leaks. In the shop they told me that it cannot be fully fixed, as even if they fix that leak, it will appear in teh same place again soon. So I was wondering, maybe someone can recommend a good shop or a specialist in NY so that I could bring my rad there.
    Or maybe someone here sells this sort of radiator?..

    I've heard good things about the above (Glen-ray). Just be sure you're seated when you view the prices.

    Well their are a few that sell this radiator. Check with summit or Classic industries. For a new one. The thing is that most radiator's today are plastic. I like the old metal ones just be sure to run good water distilled and good grade of antifreeze. Over the years have used water from the well and other place's find that you get iron from the water. Also other chemicals can be in well water that is harm full to the Radiator metal. Good luck my friend.

    Thanks for recommendations, folks. It is the core, that's leaking.
    I was looking at the radiators for sale, and I thought maybe it would make sense to buy an aftermarket one - it's cheaper....
    Well, if $450 plus shipping is cheap.
    What can you folks tell me of the aftermarket radiators for our Roadrunners - are they worth trying?...
    I was looking at this rad, have you heared anything about this brand?.... https://www.carid.com/1969-plymouth-roadrunner-engine-cooling-parts/oer-radiators-558746198.html

    Look in classic and found some OEM a little cheaper. But don't know how much for shipping.
