wonder why no one answered this after 27 views

one option
$294 new core 89- 94 capri -suit manual - they list an auto
part number RAD00291
http://nationwideautoparts.com.au/fr...hp?view=Search

you best go direct to a sydney radiator re-builder
I saw a couple of places online
http://www.superiorradiators.com.au/
http://www.swaradiators.com.au/

the top and bottom ends need to be in good condition

you can drop it off and talk about your options

any mechanical workshop will pass the job on anyway

Dirty Hands, I think DJ2015 is referring to the old coupe Capri, not the 90's convertable.

Two good radiator places, Natrad at either Moorebank or Parramatta Rd Granville...

....or a Transit van of the period is a direct swap !!! Mine had a split top tank which has changed material composition from brass to a rare element called unobtainium.
Depends on the $$ you have available for the job..
