    I will be installing a 600 HP+ 489-496 ci motor in my 79 later next summer. Wanting to find out what and where is the biggest radiator I can fit in the car. Pretty sure I am looking at 32" wide and about 19" height wise.

    yeah im not sure, but these cars have alot of room, so id think you get one in there with min to no problems, i cant remember the stock size, i did however upgrade to a three core from the original single core, but the outside dimensions stayed the same

    Yeah, I am guessing they make a four core that size as well. Maybe even a big 2 core aluminum unit with big tubes.
