Default Radiator late '76

Hi Friends,
Small hole in radiator of my '76 Corvette. Fix it fixed with "Leak Stop" from Bardahl. It is a late '76 automatic Corvette. Think about replacing the radiator. Which radiator do you recommend me? Not too expensive.
Which radiator would it be 3 or 4 row? Can you see the difference on the radiator? Thanks for answer!

You can tell how many rows it has by taking off the radiator cap and counting the rows. NOT the UP and DOWN rows...but the side to side rows...obviously.

AS for suggesting you which radiator to buy...if cost is your primary concern...then buy the one that is in your price range. I have no idea what you consider "Not to expensive"..

FWIW: a radiator shop should be able to repair and clean your radiator. Any shops near you?

You can repair/recore rad as already suggested. If you replace the rad, an aluminium rad would be my first choice.
