Without knowing what vehicle you need a radiator for it's impossible to answer your question.

Yeah, 72-75 (I think, might be 74), 76-80, 81-82, gas or Diesel, auto or stick, A/C or not.

All factors.

72 is differant, can’t remember what the difference is. I gave a 72 radiator to a guy here and he said he made it work. Try to message Wildluvracing, he is parting out a few trucks.

From what I understand there are no "new" replacement radiators. The only way you're getting a replacement is to buy one off someone who no longer needs theirs. Of course, with yours being an automatic, you're in a whole different league due to needing the transmission cooler in the lower tank.

I have no idea if there ARE any other vehicles that carry a compatible one. I think you're either going to be modifying the radiator support to make a replacement fit, or running specialty hoses to make them line up. Or both.

Could always do the speedway radiator the v8 guys use and run a separate transmission cooler.

I have a radiator out of a 75 with manual trans, if you are interested. It's in fair condition could use a pressure test and a few fins combed out but no major damage.
