Doing a quick search it doesn't look like there's a lot of options. You may want to look at: http://www.autobpa.com/designers/ They're sold through JC Whitney. They have 3 ($250) or 4 ($270) core available. Limited lifetime warranty.
I've never tried them but at least it's an option and they're made in the USA. Or maybe have an aluminum built? I haven't needed one so I'm just throwing out ideas.........

Try your local rad. repair shop. Had a simialiar problem with a 35 year rad. Talked to the repairman and he re-cored using my old tanks for around 250.00. And that was for a four core job. Did a good job on it and runs cooler and doesn't leak.
