either fit a mk2 radiator with the minor modifications that brings such as other mounting holes and an other top hose (this can be found new on ebay from time to time)

or find a second hand working or non working early austin mk1 radiator as this has brass ends and a metal core and can be recorred at a radiator place (this is what I have done). plus it also has a larger cooling capacity than the one in your photo.
