Looking to restore my 164 and need a radiator. Radiator shop wants $450 to recore. Anyone know where I can find a replacement, preferably new?

Thanks, I wondered how the core charge would work anyway since I am in the US. My radiator shop said it bears a resemblance to MG radiators. Surely this was not a one off radiator?

I'm not even sure they can use my core because it appears part of the side mount is missing.

Car-part.com shows one for $85, I called and they are unsure if it really is in stock as thieves broke in and stole a bunch of their radiators for the aluminum.

A 164 radiator doesn't have any aluminum in it. (It is copper/brass, quite a bit more valuable than aluminum.)
You can use an automatic transmission radiator, just don't hook anything to the oil cooler coil. Drain the coil first.
