1954 Radiator

I am looking to pick up an original 1954 radiator. Does anyone know if there were different size radiators for 1954 F-100's?
Thank you.

Do you have a 6 cyl. or 8? They are different. Personally unless you are going for authenticity, swap over to a newer Dodge radiator. I picked up a new radiator that required very little mod for $110 at Autozone. Anything original is prone to corrosion and failure and anything recored is big bucks $$$. Good luck.

Thanks

Hey Abe,

Not sure what motor you have but here is the FTE link I used when I did my last build. I won't try to explain it all, just refer you to the best of FTE
