stock radiator for a 71 camaro.....it is almost new and kept my old 350 very cool. It also has a fitting for the line that goes to the heads....all I did was have the rad shop guys lower the inlet pipe a few inches so that I could use a stock hose and clear the intake pipe.

Was looking around on eBay.. eBay store Univeral Parts Inc. I saw a nice setup.. I think this one will work for you 67 Camaro, has Alum. Radiator and dual fan. Thinking of getting one for my Chevelle.

Used the Jags That Run recommended plastic/aluminum six cylinder (4.3) 1990 Chevy G10 Van radiator on the 280Z along with the HUGE fan from a Lincoln MK 8. Very minor trimming to the fan shroud, it fits the core of the radiator almost perfect. Haven't run it yet, but looks like it will do the job here in FL. Radiator was a little over $100 at www.rockauto.com and I picked up the fan used by using Google (to find a Lincoln MK 8 website and a guy parting his car) for $80 shipped.
Measured the Supra & I think I can fit either an F body or Vette stock radiator & fans into it, since the frame rails are wider than on the 280Z.

I'm ordering the Summit 31x19 w/ Mark VIII fan should keep nice and cool. Only about $300 for the setup.

I'm running a new Walker radiator with a Cooling Components molded shroud and 16" single speed fan. Ran 190 degrees in traffic on the Strip in Las Vegas.
