I've been told I can get some $$ for it from a scrap yard. It's from a 91 Toyota P/U. I guess it's copper?

Your 91 Toy rad should be copper. You need to remove the side straps to get full price for it. Right now Copper is getting about $1.50 a pound so you might get $7-$9. At The rad shop I work at we take in the old rads 2 times a year and usually get about $3000.00 per haul but we have alot of old rads and cores.

Thanks Chris, Like you said, the sides are steel, and I believe the rest is copper. Thanks for the insight.
