    Odd shape emblem...Rickenbocker?? That's spelled Rong!
    Edit...Rickenbacker is right, or at least better.

    the shape of the radiator will depend on the positioning of the shell, its mounting, fan clearance, etc, etc. Better to get the final engine position settled and the grill shell positioned before selecting a radiator. That said, a typical starting point is the first gen Mustang.

    1. All Things Pontiac

    Your grill shell is from a 1928 Pontiac. They had a double coin emblem.

    If we had the dims we could better tell what would fit and be cheap(ish)

    18 x 24 x 4 I know it's gonna be "modified" ...I was thinking of visiting the tractor junk yard for the radiator ...will a tractor radiator even cool a small block chevy?
