I would suspect that the copper background is because the plating has been polished off.

Not quite sure what that is and assumed it was some type of rivet.  Possibly not on the 30U since I thought the 30u had welded frames.  Either way the hole has nothing to do with mounting the radiator.  For mounting you need the 2 threaded studs.

Talk with your radiator shop.  Given both radiators (new & old) they might be able to fabricate a solution. 

In any event someone will have to.

That hole isn't used for mounting the radiator.  Its purpose is to accommodate for a rivet point on the front frame.

This is not the correct radiator, but it is one that was fitted to my car prior to finding an original replacement radiator.  The point being is that it mounts the same. The bottom has two threaded studs that fit into the front frame.  They are bolted to the frame with washer and nut.

The top of the radiator is attached to the firewall via two rods.

You might be missing the mounting studs.

I hope this helps, Chet

There are just 2 bolts that attach the radiator bottom to the frame.  The bottom can be insulated with some 1/8 inch or 1/4 inch rubber stock.  The rods on the top attach to the firewall and you can adjust and square the radiator.

Post a picture of what you have and we can better advise you.

FYI

I think those are specific for wire wheels.  They may be harder to find.

Quote from: 29UJohn on October 29, 2022, 01:35:31 PMChet,
The pin striping looks great!  It really gives the car a great look.

Thanks John, I think so too.  The guy did a great job painting it on by hand.  He was glad I didn't ask him to do the wheels.  He did another car with wood spoked wheels that he pin striped and after two wheels the monotony set in. Big time. 

Of course, if asked he would have done it, but he would have charge accordingly. :)

If the radiator emblem has Chrysler Plymouth under the ship, it came off a 28Q.

If the radiator emblem just has Plymouth under the ship, it came off a 29U.

Of course, that is if the emblem has never been changed.  Either way it would work on either car.

I hope this helps,  Chet...
