Radiator advice

Hi guys,
Time for a new radiator for my auto 202 HZ. I run air conditioning now. Currently have a 3 row core brass copper (i think they call it an outback pack?). One guy quoted $550, said it was heavy duty off the shelf (not Chinese crap). Another said he wouldn't sell me one off the shelf (because not good enough), but would recommend re-core my existing one with three high quality core, $720.
I live on Central Coast NSW.
Any advice appreciated please.
Thanks,
Todd

I run a 3 row brass copper radiator in my HD from Aussie Desert Cooler it was about $400ish delivered & it cools a mild 202 easierly enough on a Sydneys day.

Still makes brass copper, year's ago I wanted a 3 row for my old UC Torana & I just got a HQ Chev radiator & had a radiator shop change the top inlet to 32mm.

But I'll go the V8 HQ Chev radiator as it's bigger & it's no big deal to have a shop to fit a smaller top inlet.
