I'm getting an original unrestored 1970 in running condition. Unfortunately the radiator core is leaking at the bottom. I want to unsolder the tanks and reuse them, as they are original. Where can I purchase a correct core? I checked Dewitts, and all I found were complete aluminum ones. Or is there a correct NOS one somewhere? Mark

Check with local radiator shops. 

Size of core, thickness of tubes, number of tubes and spacing of fins are what you are looking for.  A good shop should be able to find the core section and install.  Of course, expect to pay for their efforts in tracking down the specific core.

I live in a small area, and I don't think the local shop knows what a Boss 302 is. Dosn't anyone sell new cores? I restore Vettes, and have used DeWitts before for correct cores, but they don't seem to handle any for the Boss.
