Reproduction curved neck radiator

I'm bulding a COPO tribute and its time to buy a radiator. Has anyone used the repro from Classic Industries? I like to find a 4 row curved neck radiator at a decent price. I like to hear some feedback before I buy one.

Re: Reproduction curved neck radiator

I used one of the $300 'replacement' radiators a few years back in a 67 build.
Other than the mount plates not being formed like the OEM unit, it looked, fit and has worked fine so far.
This car has A/C and auto, so it does tax the unit at times, but doesn't oveheat.
The owner seldom drives the car on long trips.
Just around his town and local shows ...

It's that or the $1K+ "OEM" units for 'the look' ...

If you find one that will work, check around at several vendors--more than one is likeyly to have it...

Check out Firewheel Classics, ground-up, or Year one...their service is MUCH better than CI in my opinion.
