    new rad

    Usually re-coring your original is a very robust bolt in fit. Cost here becomes an issue as that can be almost twice as the Aluminum replacement,

    One ref is:
    http://www.speedcooling.com/1967-197...waAitjEALw_wcB

    The above link is good in that the vendor provides the dimensions.

    I suggest double checking the width on fit. The 1st gens are 23-1/2" tall x 21" wide (measured across the mounts). I recall second gen's being a tad wider but that value I do not have. Someone should be able to update that.

    It worked great in my buddy's '67 with a 250. He drove it thousands of miles since on huge road trips camping trips to yellowstone National park, and down to Redwoods forest in CA with no problems

    I am using the cougar rad and was an easy swap. my only complaint is the tranny cooler. others have said theirs had the correct fittings but mine has 5/16" thread, not the standard 1/2"x20!
    I am running an external cooler as brake lines would never flow enough. first pic shows brake line threaded in and correct line held next to it.

    I got one also it is a tight fit had to fabricate brackets out of angle iron. Watch out for the overflow tube i tried to bend mine so the hose would go on and it came off , so far JB weld is holding it on.
