Looking for a good used or a Reman? Kanter may have NOS,or remans. Good used will be a hens tooth.
Stick or Auto? That may make a difference.
Unless your is badly damaged, it can be re-cored for 7-9 hundred. For this, you would likely need to ship it outside the "People's Republic" of California as it contains lead.
Happy Hunting!

Thanks for the info. I don't have one to recore. It's for a Caribbean with auto trans. The Brass Works is about 15 miles from me in Paso Robles, if I need a recore.

As far as I can recall, all the 1953 radiators were the same, the only difference being a thicker one for sedans and hardtops with factory A/C. 1954's may have been the same too and even the earlier ones back to 1951 will fit but I believe there was a slight difference to the mounting points. They were in the same places, I believe, so will interchange but a different number were used.

The type of transmission made no difference since the transmission cooler for the Ultramatic was external so if yours is missing, you'll need that too.

Try Mike at Tucson Packards for dry-stored parts or Gerry at Southwest Packard in San Diego.

...and remember those radiators were mounted using rubber bushings and short metal sleeves.
