    I need a radiator for my fury. The original engine was a 383 but it now has a 340. I need a radiator that will fit but with the inlet on the driver's side and the outlet on the passenger side. Any suggestions? Also, if anyone has the dimensions of the stock radiator that they could pass along that would be helpful too. I have no idea what the present radiator came out of, and of course it doesn't fit at all. Thanks!

    I have several radiators. However most need to be re-cored. And the others a good cleaning at least. But you will the CDPD logo so it will look original on the tank. And a part # that may or may not be correct for that year.

    There's no need to be insulting. I have done my research, and asking questions is a part of that process. I am hoping to get some input from someone that has faced a similar situation with their '65. Before you reply to a post, maybe you should ask yourself if you actually want to help in some way. If the answer is no, just don't do it. Only small people build themselves up by tearing others down. And for all that, the link you posted doesn't work!

    It's just Stubb's, nothing to get worked up over.

    It always helps if you provide pictures, it helps us see what the issue is with more clairity.

    Do you have a 22" or 26" radiator support opening? A/C car? Stock 383 non A/C came with 22" radiator. Just measure the opening side to side, that will get you started. Might have to look for a radiator that came out of a later small block car. Dig a little deeper. MyMopar.com has a list of radiator numbers according to year and engine size, and can give you a part number to hunt for. Or go aftermarket like Cold Case etc.

    It originally had a 383 with AC and a 26" opening. At some point, the 383 got replaced with a 340. After we got the car (restoring for my wife), we thought about getting another 383 but decided to keep the 340 as it is a nice engine and she isn't concerned that it is not all original. I have spoken with several suppliers and am just trying to narrow down my choices, as there are several. This my be a Christmas gift this year. I really hoped for some input from someone that may have a Sport Fury. Thanks for the MyMopar suggestion, I will check that out.

    I'm not insulting! I see a lot of stupid questions all the time on the web. Stupid shit like, where can I get a roll of toilet paper? I mean really?
    Funny that the link doesn't work, I got it from this site, better take your beef up with Joey. Try this link! Cold Case Aluminum Radiators

    I checked my 65 parts book. Your car with a 383 Auto and AC had a 26" radiator with the 2524 984 part# on the upper tank
    A Fury with a 318 auto and A/c also had a 26" radiator. PN: 2524 992. With the small block now in your car you need the 2524 992 radiator.
    They are C body only. Listed for Dodge Polara and Plymouth Fury. It would also have a shroud. Not sure if you are using the A/C or not but the ideal set-up for your car would be the 992 radiator with shroud and clutch fan.
    B Body cars used a different radiator.

    I went with the CU526 from Spectra. It fits the original mounting holes and the ports are on the correct side for the 340. Originally for a '71 Dart. A shroud is also available.

    Me and my wife like to work on these old cars and bring them back to life, my son helps too, a great hobby. It would have been nice if the car had the original engine when we bought it but the 340 will work nicely. Not really going for the all original show car, just a nice cruiser. She fell in love with the car and I told her we would make it work. It has been a bit of a challenge but we have made a lot of progress. Got the engine and tranny out, all the chrome off, and off to the body shop in a couple of weeks. I need to get her to post some pics of our progress. It's been three years on this one so far.
