what's the best way to dispose of my old radiator? I'm not sure if it's original or not, but I do know the seam on the driver's side is in bad shape. Would anyone have any use for it or should I just put it on the curb next trash day?

Is the copper core worth anything?

If you are going to trash it, take it to a recycler. You might be surprise what it will bring

:agree: with #2 copper running about $2/lb, rads are bringing in pretty good $$$

I would save it. Old car radiators are becoming big $$

well, this thing is still sitting in my garage. The recylcers I called only buy whole cars, not individual parts, and the one place I did find said they'd give me salvage value of $25. But they're 2 hours away... not even worth the gas. Anybody on here have any use for it?

Cal your local junk man, the kind that scavenge the trash for resellable items, he will take it.

:agree:
You should liik for a Scrap Metal Recycler, they usually specialize in old copper wire, copper, a/c coils, aluminum etc. Only place you'll get top dollar. Most of them don't even take steel.
