    I have to post quick- will do a search later tonight, but will be passing the replacement auto parts shops now.. Just need a replacement part # for a new radiator for my GS 400 automatic. I think there was the 1987 Regal style that fits? Thank you in advance.

    I think a Spectra (DPI#) 161 will work if you’re willing to use a plastic tank aluminum core, with a heater return line that has a blockoff cap. I would ask for the info they list for both ‘69 and ‘70; the catalogs are often full of wonky yet shared info. It’s difficult and expensive to find copper/brass anymore, If you do it costs so much you might as well restore one or buy a repro or disguised aluminum unit. For what it’s worth, I have a plastic tank one in my ‘68 and it works very well.
