Those must be "new" as they weren't out there a few years ago. Even the AL customs where flat tops.
Some ugly welding? Not machine made.

If cooling becomes an issue, add a fan shroud and make sure all the front sheet metal is back on to direct the flow.
Usually, one needs extra additive with mixed metal systems, but frequent coolant change with good grade today works.

Shouldn't be too big a deal to recore an original. Fair quantity out there. I had mine done. Cost maybe same with fabrication.
There's the universal "wrinkle" hoses that take the bends better if fitment is poor. I took one over the bow by the purists when I posted mine.
