Actually

I don't see why they wouldn't make them for T-Birds and Cougars....We have the same Engines.
If not...I'm sure you could make one fit.....There's always a way if you put your mind to it....LOL

1-800-RADIATOR <-- a good buy, ecspecially for copper/brass which will last longer than the alluminum aftermarket rads scince aluminum corodes and you won't have to worry about buying that special antifreeze like GMs have to have for their late model cars. I bought one from their for my 460 and it cost no more than $180.

beiruts finest

beiruts finest, on your griffin from autozone, does it have aluminum side takjs or are they plastic, 175 seems cheap for an all aluminum radiator

Whoops, I should have spec'd that. It's a factory style, I have some pictures of it if you want them.

Hmmm.... When I got a radiator over the summer from autozone it was a modine, plastic side tanks. (For the camaro though) It was about that price too IIRC. Looks like this one is made by GDI....

Whoops, forgot to reply concerning that. It's a stock radiator, OEM IIRC. It was a good working pull from a parts car I had that was hit in the side. Let me know if you need to know anything else about it...
