I used the Search engine on this forum, using Replacement Radiator, as I recall, and came up with a number of post, including the information you need. Thanks to protourbird for this information.

I have received the first Griffin Thermal Products aluminum replacement radiator for the 1958 to 1960 Square Bird. They now have the part number in their system # 7-258BJ-FAX. Retail price will be $545.00 and includes the built in trans cooler. There are no plans to make one without the cooler at this time but for the few that have the manual trans all you would have to do is cap off the fittings. It has two 1" rows and should be more than sufficient for A/C with up to at least 400hp.

If anyone is going to shell out serious money for a radiator, they might want to see which one has the best cooling capability. I am not sure how this would be measured (number of rows? total exposed area?) but given the Squarebirds marginal cooling system, if you are going to change anyway, you might as well get all the cooling you can. (while we're on cooling and you have the car apart, get a 6 blade fan!!)
