I have a 68 Shelby GT 500 428PI, 4 speed. Concours driven. I'm getting ready for the Mustang Nationals. Noticed a pin hole in the top tank and previously I had some leakage around the filler neck.

The upper tank and lower tank are origional and the radiator has been recored.

Is there a correct concours New radiator, that I can feel better about driving with, that is a correct replacement for the origional or should I just send it out, again, to be repaired?

No there is not. A good reproduction might pass inspection depending on the class, organization or judge but IMHO you running the risk especially considering you at least have an original to start with

If you have an original dated L1 radiator it is well worth repairing. With a new core it is more than adequate to cool your car. Don't opt for the 4 row upgrade on the core as you'll have clearance issues from the fan

You actually did the best thing. Reused the original tanks where all the numbers are stamped. How about seeing if the neck and tank can be soldered?
