Default Pt cruiser 1.6L radiator

Hello, Our family owns a pt cruiser. Year of manufaturer is 2001 and it is 1,6 Liter manual gearbox. I recently crashed my pt and my radiator got hit aswell. First I went to radiator shop and they said it isnt fixable. So i got to looking in my local salvage yards but noone offers 1,6liter 2001 pt cruiser radiator. So i went to look online and same nothing for 1,6 liter engine. All i see is radiators that are same dimensions but they have the pipe that goes ontop in slight angle, however my 1,6liter manual radiator have it go stright up and it has a cap in end of it for what i guess you pour fluid into.. I dont know what to do if i cannot find the radiator. Has it been modified? or something?

Radiator is still at shop so i cannot take a picture but ill try to make clear image for you with this simply modified picture because i cannot find anything alike in internet. So in this picture
I'm trying to say that for my PT there is both pipes like in this image except they are both in the right hand side. And there is also one mayor difference in my radiator antifreeze pours directly into radiator there fore it has radiator cap on top of radiator. For other PT's I know they pour antifreeze into thermostat but that isnt case for me. My antifreeze goes in radiator cap wich is on top of radiator and there is small pipe wich goes to expansion bundle.
Ill try to get radiaor back by saturday and maybe post you image to clear up what im trying to say.

RockAuto sells them, but it's listed as 'Out of Stock'.

I wasn't aware the PT Cruiser ever had a 1.6 engine in it. I thought they all came with either the N/A 2.4 or the 2.4 turbo. Are you sure about that engine being a 1.6? If so, what country are you in? I'd love to see a picture of that engine.

The 1.6 is mostly seen in the UK. The is also a diesel version, but I'm not sure about engine size.

Thanks for clarifying that, LionPT. So am I correct in thinking the only U.S. offered engine is indeed the 2.4, no matter the trim level?
