Original Radiator

How can I determine if the radiator in my 1968 RS is original to the car? Mine's got a leak and I either need to repair or replace.

Re: Original Radiator

Shouldn't be that expensive to have it repaired. Mine had a leak, pulled it and took it to a radiator shop. Cost me $25 to get the leak brazed.

Re: Original Radiator

Great selection of aftermarket ones if you go that route. I had a 1991 Z/28 I installed a Be Cool radiator in and it was one of the best things I ever did for the car. The 82-92 F-Bodys were notorious for cooling issues. That radiator, 160 thermostat and the HyperTech Chip and Fan Switch cure my cooling problems. I realize though your's is a different generation.
