I'd venture that your 2-core would probably be fine with your current setup, if it was cleaned out.
And more power doesn't mean more heat. What matters is part-throttle efficiency - how much heat is being rejected at lower power levels (and idle).
I agree with Scott and just have a 3-row core installed on your current tanks.

Scott,
About how much does it cost to have them go thru a radiator?

At least nobody needs to ask what the issue is with that tag.
Asking price of $79,995.

Funny the salesman at the consignment shop had to ask what was wrong with it.

VIN: 124679N618052

Trim tag is an incorrect stamp. So bad it is not even funny.

Pointed it out to the consignment shop and they did not give a flip. I live less than a mile from this place. Any buyers needing inspection let me know.

Nigel,

I purchased my date coded carb for my 396/325 car from Custom Rebuilt Carburetors (http://customrebuiltcarburetors.com/). The owner, Philip is a great guy to deal with. Depending on the date code your after it looks like they have several available for sale.

Good luck!

I love how "flat" car is in the turn.   I seem to remember a mention of how really big (for the time) 1.25" or bigger front bars had started to come into play...    Ken

Nothing wrong with stock radiators. No need to buy aluminum. If you want to keep your Harrison tanks, send the unit to Glen-Ray. He's done work for me and it top notch. http://www.restorationradiators.com/ If you want, melt off your tanks and just ship them. Don't  throw out your old tanks. Give or sell them to people who have radiators properly re-cored. Be very careful of radiator shops who claim to do quality restoration work. Many are hacks. Good shops know that manual and auto tranny filler necks are clocked differently, what drain petcock is correct, and how much solder should be exposed. Many hammer on the solder and the result looks awful.

Radiators have rows. Many refer to radiators as 2,3 and 4 core, which is wrong. The core is the unit between the tanks.
