The 40 series rear heater cores were discontinued by Toyota as far back as 1997 when I first looked into it and there are no aftermarket replacements as far as I know. I even went so far as contacting radiator companies to see what kind of minimums would be required to custom make a replica. Basically the only viable option in 2013 is to find a good used one.

Good radiator shops can fix the rear heater cores, if they are fixable at all. I had 3 cores done at one shop for $100 or so. Some shops won't agree to work on these, but some will - you need to carry in the heater core (if it's remotely fixable) and talk them into it.

I have the rear heater out of my 76 I'd be willing to part with if you're still interested. Assuming it should fit a 79.
