So the original post is about the Alfetta, which does not have the same space as the Spider, nor the GTV6. I am looking into this because I got a quote to re-core my Alfetta radiator for $450. There should be an aluminum radiator out there, even custom made, for close to that.
The Griffin and Jegs radiator that people have been using for GTV6 measure 27x15.5" and 28x16.5" respectively. My Alfetta GT radiator measures 23x12". The horizontal physical limitation is the body frame which I measure to be about 27".
The vertical limitations are the lower support tabs for the dimples in the bottom of the radiator and the bolt hole at the top. If I remove those two lower supports tabs and measure from the bottom of the car I get about an inch more; 13". However, it is 14" to the center of the bolt hole holding the radiator down and 16" to the top of the sheet metal.
So the Griffin radiator would work if I grind off the lower dimple support tabs, let the radiator rest on the bottom of the car, and figure out a way to attach the radiator at the top, since the bolt hole would be blocked. Going custom and not modifying the car would require a 27x12" radiator max.
I assume the GTV6 folks who have done these aluminum radiators still use the bolt hole a the top? The means the GTV6 has a deeper radiator fit that the Alfetta? From the pictures I've seen, the body has a deeper area under the bumper that houses more radiator real estate?
Does anyone have the dimensions of a stock GTV6 radiator? How does the width and depth compare to the stock Alfetta?
