60 Burb Radiator

So I decided to get the radiator repaired as it has a leak. To get it completely done the shop wants $500. Some of the replacement ones seem to run between $380 -450. I am thinking that it would probably be better to get the original fixed and keep it original ...any input ?

If you can get a good quality radiator for the $380-450, I would go that route rather than messing with the old radiator.

Re: 60 Burb Radiator

I paid $380 to get my old one redone, about the same price as a new aluminum one. I've heard it's not easy to repair aluminum ones and I don't think they last as long.
