Check with Griffin Radiators, They can build you a radiator with their original like top tanks. I'm considering doing that on my 1955 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer.

The cheaper ones with good looking rounded tanks are sold by KKS, and you can get them off ebay. That's what I would recommend. If you don't want to modify your core support, go with the one made for '62-'65 B-body cars. If you want to open up the core support for even better cooling, you can go with a 26" radiator from a '66-'70 B-body. But this does require custom mounts and locaion. The '62-'65 version is practically a drop-in replacement.

Bought a "guaranteed to never leak" aluminum radiator on ebay 4/5 years ago. Cooled excellent but started to leak 3 years later, now like a sieve. The company that "guaranteed lifelong or money back" is long gone....
The OE radiator lasted 54 years.
