When I got my '71 GT the PO had bypassed the heat exchanger / heater core. I got around to pulling the dash off to fix a few other things and dove in to pulling my heater out to inspect. It honestly looks like it's never been used - no rats nests, very little more than light dust :eek:

Sadly the heat exchanger seems beyond repair - it'd guess it's pushing on for ~25% decades old radiator sealant. Has anyone found a suitable modern replacement part or even have one in a usable condition they're willing to sell?

Splendid parts are the only source i've found but given they're closed until January - and my current DE>US delivery time is 6 weeks, and still on the docks, I'm looking for options.

This one on eBay might be worth a look. Also includes the fan and motor.

Ask at your local radiator repair shop, and I mean the kind that re-cores radiators, not simply sells you a new radiator. Most full service rad shops can quite easily re-core your old heater core.
