Default Looking for radiator support

Ive look some but can't seem to find a new replacement radiator support for the single headlight. Ive seen them for the duel headlights. Someone must know.

Are you talking about the core support itself? Have you tried Mikes monties or Dixie Monte Carlo?

You may be looking at getting a used one. I don't know that I have seen new for the single headlight. One of the problems is they were only made for 3 years that I'm aware.

I agree with Rob. I think you'll need to find a good used one...that's what I ended up doing.

i was thinking along the lines of what the difference is between the supports was.were i used and 78-81 on my 82 style headlight set up.didn't know if that would help determine if you could use the 82-87 style support or not.

Chris,
I guess we never determined what other differences there are between radiator supports, aside from the headlight openings being different.
That's the only ones that I'm aware of.

Think it more the frame and nose and fenders than the support itself. Minus having two or four hole for the headlights.

I would say a whole car for parts or a boneyard. Any of these G bodys with a single headlight should do the trick.
