    my gtx has A1 option shows 26 inch radiator. However the opening is for 22 inch all factory spotwelds are on core support. The stamped number on core matches fender tag.

    LOL, I have the opposite problem, my Coronet has a 26" opening & the A location is blank.... And the VON on the FT matches the cowl & trunk lip.... Gotta wonder how many others don't match... BTW my car built nearly three months before yours so it's not like the new guy screwed up both the same day...

      68 model fender tag shows order number that matches the number stamped on core not vin.

          That's how his tag reads.... But since it shows a 26" radiator who knows what else it does or doesn't have....... J/K

            I just dont see a 22" opening for a 26" radiator. The opening on my 68 RT matches the 26" radiator. Why would Plymouth do any different?

            A 22" support gets a 22" radiator.... Though there is now a company that sells a 26" radiator that bolts to a 22" support...

              One must consider all possibilities including a badly remade fender tag.

              Why don't you just tell us.... It looks fine to me.... Though I would agree with Doug about it possibly being a repo tag
