Looking for some assistance/recommendations. I looked on the forum, but the last thread I could find about replacement radiators was from 2008.

I have a 1981 W250, 318, 4 sp Power Ram. The original radiator leaks - cracks that expand when warmed up.

The truck is by no means a show truck, just trying to save it, extend Its life and utility - former USAF crash truck, 30K original miles and still wearing its Chrysler P74 National Fire Safety Yellow paint; purchased through GSA auction.

Looking for a radiator. Ordered one from Parts Geek, but it arrived damaged, and quite frankly, I am underwhelmed by its cheap Chinese quality (shocking). Sending it back.

Not looking to spend $1000 for an aluminum radiator, but don’t mind spending money for quality.

I will start with the hardest ask first:
Anyone have a NOS radiator?

Recommendations for vendors of old school quality radiators?

May end up hopefully finding a good quality junk yard radiator that’s been pressure tested.

Thank you!
