Do you just want to cool it or look cool? I'd take a look at your Moss cat. and see what you think about changing to the later cross flow system. It should fit correctly and do the job. Steve (CTR)

a local radiator shop can re-core your old one, patch up any holes in the tanks and solder it all together as good as new (and pressure test it)

Is this the Bugeye style or the later cross flow style? 

Are you you looking for new or would a used one suffice?

OK, so not a Mini, but a 1275, same power unit, basically.  The radiator is junk, so I was thinking about replacing with an aluminum one.
Have found some here:

ebay - made in china  $235
Wizard - made is USA $500
bugeye guy.com $399
Serick Motor Sports, uk 365 pounds
Speedwell Engineering $725

all plus shipping.

Put up a thread on British Car Forum, got good recs about all of them. Hard to reach a decision.  Any comments/ideas from this group?

Don't delay, I'll probably order one tomorrow.
