From the Pontiac parts illustrated the "B" body with a 231 had the same radiator.

From the Mitchell interchange, the 75 and up "A", "B" "F" and "X" with the Chevy 250 or Buick 231 can have the same size radiator.

Anywhere i can get a PDF version of that part's illustration? I assume it's the 76-81 book? That's super good to know about interchangeability. But I'd imagine it'll be just as hard if not worse finding one for a 250 I6.

Thank you, man! Wow, $320 is a pretty good price for a copper.
Its a really good price. They also have a 4 row. When I was buying parts for my coupe I spent big $$ on a 4 row from a company in CA. The radiators from Summit are much less expensive. Seems to be made well.

I looked at it and even has the same Dimensions as my original one!! 26" wide and 17" Tall. (mine was 18" tall" but close enough! First time i came across that. Sheesh. I found another site that wanted $595 just to bring mine in and recore it, but still using original tanks. But i would be able to pick my cores/size 1/2" 3/8" etc. Why do some sites ask about A/C?

Bumper Jacks?? You mean those one leg wonders that were guaranteed from the factory to slip and drop while you were trying to change a tire? or the tire iron/jack handle would slip and smash your fingers?? That MPOS??

Wee-ell,, collect enough of them and you can turn them into posts for around a vegetable garden, or stakes for a horse-shoe pit, or bury them in the floor of your news garage just before you pour the concrete and tie off the rebar and mesh to them. See, they can be useful, just NOT as jacks.

For that I went out and scored a 2.25T baby floor jack( portable) from the local auto supply store and fits and sits just on top of the spare quite nicely. The spare, being full size lays flat and leaves the pocket available to stash other bits. JUst me, being creative.

Yes those. lol. I've used them a few times. You just need super flat lvl ground. Otherwise yes dangerous but not bad.
