I called today September 22 to check on the radiator I ordered from Dillon Radiators on July 22, I even have a copy of the text on that date that I sent the owner with all the measurements on my Poly powered 63 Sport Fury and of the old radiator. The owner was on the road to a show however the lady that I spoke to said there was no record of my order in the system. I have been looking for a box every day for the last month or more....is that any way to run a company??

Any suggestions on who to go to for a new aluminum radiator??? I don't want a stock looking replacement...

Ebay... There are some decent ones on there. I bought a nice aluminum one for my run stand looked to be decent quality. I'm pretty sure it was 139.00 shipped. The prices have jumped up a bit now though. This was a 26 inch Mopar B-Body radiator. Here are some Ebay listings.

I'm up in Western NY, and there is a local shop called Wizard Cooling in West Falls near us. I've seen their work, and looks top shelf, but I've never used, or been a fan of aluminum rads.
Here's a link, maybe contact them:
wizardcooling.com

I'm close enough to them, if that helps at all...

I have looked at their website, their radiator for my car has the bottom hose outlet on the passenger side, I need mine on the driver's side.

I believe they also custom make radiators to fit customer request's, and moving the outlet to the other side doesn't seem like much of a mod ? If you can't find what your looking for, give them a call. They seem pretty decent, as I've talked with them at some local events.

So you paid for this radiator and never got it?

I have one, and it's great. Stock mounting and stock shroud. And, most importantly, cools as it supposed to, unlike the Champion junk it replaced. I'd recommend Wizard.

I'm pretty happy with my Cold Case 26" rad in my 64' Polara

I’ve worked with the owner several times and he is top notch! Tell him you need the lower hose on the opposite side and he will do anything you want. He’s like 7min down the road from me. Great guy to deal with at Wizard cooling.

Pricy, but probably the highest quality aluminum ones made are the Exact Fit series from Griffin.
(They do "conventional" construction radiators also.)
