Default Factory or After Market Radiator?

I recently bought and am trying to finish an original Classic Roadster.
Does anyone have a factory radiator for it or have the dimensions of the original so I can have one built?
Please feel free to share any after market units that will work also.
Thanks in advance!

They're all after market...I'm not sure what engine choice you're going with, but you should just take a few measurements and install the largest you can fit in there, you can't overdo it. Call Griffin.

I have the original CR drawing for a big block radiator. If you email me I can send you a copy. I gave the drawing to a place in Atlanta and they custom built an aluminum one for me. I know they now offer the radiator as a catolog item. I would have to search my stack of receipts to get the name and address.

Dave,
I used a Griffin radiator from Summit. 26x19x2 dual core. My 500 horse small block stays cool. Your part number will depend on size and location of your inlet and outlet.
Good luck with your build.

I found my paperwork. I sent the original CR drawing to Brice Thomas Radiator in Alabama (800-223-4299). They are affiliated with CG&J Inc. They did an excellant job

One of the best radiator men in the business is in your back yard. Arts Radiator did a fantastic job on my Cobra radiator. Completely hand made aluminium radiator for my FE 427. Not one single problem in ove r6 years. He also made one for my Daytona Coupe a couple of years ago.

You all do realize that the topic was started in 2012 and the latest reply (before this kick) was 2014...

Looks like here in the future I have one and will edit and add a photo of a CR radiator and support with exact dimensions tomorrow.
I don’t see this info in the thread…. solution is to add it now.
