    There's an old Ford out at my Bro in law's. I'll check on it someday this week and get back with you. Not sure of the year or if it is a 6 or 8 cylinder.

    Why mess with a used radiator you can purchase a new one from your local NAPA store for about $200.00, Part # NR 397. Exactily the same size ya need.

    try junkyardog.com..You can input what you need and the email is sent to junk yards all over the country, then the junk yards will get back to you, thats what i did on an alternator that i was having problems getting...I used junk yard dog, and found the part the next day after looking for about 3 weeks with no luck.
