All if can find is radiators that have to have electric fan hook ups. Anyplace that sells stock replacements? Just not sure on hooking up the fan wiring to come one automatically.

Clicking on the banner at top of forum or below:
https://www.riksvet.com/
typing "radiators" or "stock radiators" in the search box will give you several to choose from.

Also, search this forum as there are several posts on installing different types of radiators including stock.

I've had just about every kind of fan setup over the years & believe the flex fan setup is the best for several reasons as long as it is installed correctly. The most important factor is the blade placement for & aft.  It must be exactly !/2 inside the shroud & 1/2 out. It pulls lots of air at low speeds & higher rpms flattens out increasing hp. No wires or a clutch that is heavy & does go bad & blocks air flow. Pretty easy to adjust the back & forth position with different size shims.  Once installed it just works. I've had this setup on my 68 for 17 yrs now & never a problem with heat. Even have it on my 67 Dodge...(both are BB radical engines) no problems.
