Mine is out right now for the car's rebuild. I'll measure it today and post dimensions later.

Sorry, I stuck a nail through my shoe into my foot this afternoon and spent the rest of the day waiting on a tetanus shot. I'll try to get it done after work tomorrow.

If my memory serves right, it was 26 x 19.

Thanks Mike,
looks like the one I have will be OK, its 25X20X2.4 but as per David. V advice I'll have to modify the outlet to clear the steering rack,

regards,
Eric

Ok the radiator in my car is 26 x 18 3/4", but at the top it steps out to 26 1/2" for the upper radiator hose connection. It is copper/brass with 3 rows.

It cooled my stock 350 crate motor fine after I got the timing issues corrected. I did ditch the mechanical fan and replaced it with a 16" electric.

Since I'm going back with a much hotter 383, I'll be replacing it with an aluminum unit.
