I was recently given as a gift, a '69 Continental. She needs a bit of love, but overall, good condition.

I got the car running, the only problem under the hood is the radiator sprung a nice leak that shoots a stream of antifreeze straight out onto the block. Sad day. Anybody know where I can find a radiator to fit? I've been doing some searching, and I haven't come up with anything yet. I know I can repair it, but I kind of want to just replace it.

Sure thing. Like I said, needs some love.
That dent on the bumper is the only dent anywhere, so that makes me happy.

VERY nice and original looking 1969.  Love the 460 engine too.  Have you tried RockAuto.com for the radiator? 

 

Do you plan on keeping it to restore or ?

Rock Auto was my first place to try haha. I've found some aftermarket options, but in the $600 range. I did happen to find a local repair shop that repairs plenty of old radiators, so that's my fix I guess.

This car is a little odd, though. The serial number has one section that doesn't make sense. On digit 3-4; for the body code section, instead of an 80 or an 82, mine has 81. Ford doesn't seem to have a record of this?
