Default Lower radiator mounting nuts

Does anyone know if the push in nuts for mounting the bottom of the radiator are available anywhere?

Send Carl ~ partsetal an email or PM. He has a lot of Squarebird parts from his parts cars and he might have those.

Actually, they do seem to be available new. Anytime you are looking for parts, look in the Advertisements Forum at the various Tbird parts vendors. If you do not have any of their catalogs, either call them, or email them and ask for their free catalog so you can price shop and see what is available. I just looked in The Bird Nest catalog and see that they have Radiator Lower Retaining Nuts listed '58-'60, 359613-S for $3.95ea. You might check the other parts houses and see if anyone is selling them at a cheaper price. Here is The Bird Nest website.

Default cage nut

Looks like a standard cage nut from that Bird Nest picture. I suspect Hillman makes a replacement and they are the major supplier to hardware
stores. I would start in the specialty fastener section of a Lowes or local hdwr store. If they don't have then the local body shop supply should.
