18711 has an aftermarket* (and stuffed up) radiator, so I am in dire need of a replacement. The local car parts supplier has loads available, but finding a fitting one from the catalogs is next to impossible, since they are all sorted on brand/model and the catalog is ~1500 pages thick. Jensen is not listed (what a bombshell).

Does anyone know of any contemporary or volume car models that have a compatible radiator? Any ideas?

Edit: *) It's marked "Tucson Radiator", but looks a lot like the one pictured in the JHPS boutique. Makes me assume it's aftermarket, but who can tell...

I talked to member Bruce "Red Racer" Madden in Atlanta who said any good rebuilding shop should be able to re-core your radiator, but "be sure to tell them you need a 3-row staggered core." (As opposed to in-line core.)

This was sorted years ago, had a local radiator shop fit the largest core from Nissens that would fit the tanks.

--------- BUMP -------------
Want to bump this to see if anyone has lines on part numbers, or easily adaptable OEM radiators in the U.S. Or are you just get their old one re-cored?
I've heard a lot of advice about recoring radiators, including "make sure you get a 3-row staggered core," and "I got a 4-row core for mine." I'll have to see what's available at the local shop in Dallas.
Anyone care to weigh in? While it's out, I'd like to get this redone once and for all.
