Concerning the radiator, the tanks are shot also so a recore wont work?
If you are willing to go custom there is a well known company in the Corvette restoration field that might be able to make one.

It needs a front windshield and I see those are available. We are going to put a Vintage Air system on the car. The original radiator is no good and we must get a good radiator. Not sure exactly where to find that. Tks.
OPGI has them.
