Hi Guys,
           I'm currently going over my new purchase of a 69 Convertible X55 and have a few questions I hope you can guide me through. This car is extremely stock and original. I don't want to change anything that would deter from the originality factor so that's why I have these questions.
           1st. My car came with dealer installed air.  Right now it has the regular radiator with a cooler installed in front of it and a flex type fan replacing the stock original fan back in 69 when the dealer installed the air. The current radiator has some problems.  Question is, should I replace as is and leave it as it came from the dealer, or upgrade the radiator. I would like to just replace the original thin radiator with a correct 4 core radiator. I believe this would help keep the car running cooler and not deter from it's originality to much.
            2nd. I have to replace the subframe bushings. Question is, should I go with correct rubber or aftermarket poly? I'm getting different opinions on both good and bad.
            3rd. I have a small dent in the oil pan by the drainplug and it is not seating tightly. Should I pound it out and keep the original or just put the correct new one in?
            The rest of the car is in great condition and I want to leave it as it came off the lot back in 69. Please give me your opinions on these repairs/replacements.
