welcome. Sweet deal. We want pics

Check bjsoffroad.com and teamgrandwagoneer.com

They're the main FSJ parts places. Also check summit, etc...

Not sure what else would fit. May have to get the old one rebuilt, repaired, or have the inlet and outlet swapped on a new one. Way cool Wagon, that Jeep emblem on the fender has always been top on my list

I've got 1 so far. The second one is eluding me.

Find a radiator shop. They may be able to repair the hole and if not they can point you in the right direction for a new one.

Have you checked to see if a radiator from a newer Wagoneer would work? The radiator support didn't hardly change over the years so a newer model may have a compatible radiator. The inlet/outlet position may be the only variable.

as far as I can tell the 73 radiator the inlet and outlets r just swaped and the brackets make it set away from the engine a inch or so more but other than that there the same how difficult is it to swap the inlet and outlet anything special than just moving them I can get a aluminum one for 150 bucks

Any decent radiator shop can swap the inlet/outlet. I'd find such a shop before purchasing a radiator though and make sure to tell them what material it's made of.

wow, yours looks a lot like my 1966! mine has the 327 vigilante v8 with the 3-on-the-tree tranny. i agree with pulling it and taking it to a radiator shop. will probably just be easier and cheaper to have them rebuild yours. good luck for sure.

possible radiator option

I have a '66 and a '68 I am working on. The '66 came with a 327 and has a narrower radiator support. I need a new radiator as well and it looks like one for the late 60's early 70's GMC trucks should fit with the right hose size and placement. Seems like they are about $300. Just find a parts store that still uses catalogs and double check the picture.
