Well, this is the cheapest I have seen this radiator for, so I just ordered it. It is from a Nascar Racing parts supplier. Click HERE to go directly to the site.

That's an excellent buy! I can't get the stinking page to load, though. Did you notice if this is their normal price, or is it some kind of limited time promotion? I book marked it and wilil try it again in the a.m.

That Griffin would look real nice in my '66 ... then my son's '65 could inherit my radiator /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

Looks like its not a bolt in. How you planning on mounting it?

These are generic crossflow racing radiators usually on sale for between 159-180 dollars in generic sizes. I use a 19x27" in my '69. They provide excellent cooling. They have no provision for mounting but may be clamped in mimicking the high po radiators found in Mach 1's etc. After my last Griffin was destroyed by freeway debris I used an AFCO racing radiator...This is also a generic radiator but has some pre-existing holes in the radiator support whereas the Griffin is strictly drill your own. These are excellent values, and the only way to go if originality is not a concern. Leaf through a copy of circle track at your local newstand for current pricing. They were available for $150.00 up until about a year ago.

Sounds like what I need. How do I find out which one will fit My '70 with 351w? Where do you measure and are the inlet/outlets correct?

I installed one in my 73 and it was almost a drop in fit. Even the fan shroud fit.

Question 1: What kind of Goodyear tires are you running that have the big lettering like that?
Question 2: Why is your username Grabberblue when your car is not (LOL)?

Why does someone with a handle of grabberblue that owns a 66 coupe and a 70 coupe have a picture of a red '70 boss in their sig? *LOL* ... Just kidding ... cool car, though!

I used the length between the front framerails at the radiator support (27.5" on my '69)...I believe that all the radiators are 19" tall (Which matches pretty closely to stock Ford). They are all crossflow. "Ford" style have the bottom outlet on the driver's side. "Chevy" (abn makes a silent prayer for forgiveness at the mention of the forbidden word) style has the bottom outlet on the passenger side. I was able to fit both my AFCO and the Griffin before it with a stock hose set. I bought the Ford style...but my Windsor has an aluminum waterpump with the later model driver's side inlet. If you already have a clamp in radiator then installation should be a breeze w/ a minimum of fabrication. If you don't, then you will be unpleasantly surprised at the cost of original style radiator clamps and rubbers. I made my own clamps out of aluminum sheet and flats and used an old foam computer wrist pad for rubber cushions. But when I find some reasonable or free original style radiator clamps I'll go that way.

I measured the one I have and it was 22x19, so that is the one I ordered.
