    Just became a member of this site and have loved reading about this build. You are doing an incredible job. Wish our 68' looked half that good. One question, where did you get the radiator re-built and how bad was the price? Ours has a small leak and wondering if we re-build or replace. Thanks

    Tough to find good radiator shops anymore, had to get mine rebuilt in Houston while visiting family. He removed the tanks, cleaned it all (several tubes were blocked) and reinstalled the tanks for right around $100. He said the original brass/copper radiators are better than the aluminum ones as the aluminum ones really can't be cleaned or repaired.

    These look to be a nice brass/copper replacement, but not cheap...
