I would say go with whatever is priced better, or looks more original (whichever is your priority). I have had radiators desoldered, rodded out, resoldered, pressure tested, and painted with no problems at the local radiator shop. It costs between $50-$100 to have done. But you have to have a good core to start with. I have also bought new radiators with "lifetime" warrantees for $250 with no problems. (although these look slightly different than stock).
