    That's about what is in mine, I think it is an even 28x19, but it a dual 1.5" Nascar app.

    Cool !! Seems our dirt track racers prefer the Griffin's over everything.. They are tuff and cool there high revving engines. I hope this get's you on the street to enjoy some cruising.

    I put a 28x19 in my 68 440/505 fish. the core was the same size as the hole in the cradle, side tanks are wider. can attest to the toughness of the griffins, I pulled the floor jack out from under the car(trying to move it sideways) and dropped the car, bowed the radiator
    ( bent ) it up in the middle about an 1 1/2", along w/ the splash pan. straightened out the splash pan and repainted it. the radiator is holding up so far-no leaks !! took pics of it on my phone

      Looks like an answer to your problems right there.
      I always loved the look of your car! (Even when you had the Camaro......)
      Is that you in the pics?
      How much money are we talking about here for the mods?
