429cj in 56 F100

Does anyone here have an F100 with a big block in it. I need advice on radiator supplier that builds one to fit the stock front end and cool a big block.
Thanks!

I've got a 460 in mine. I used the 4-row one, from mid-fifty (copper-brass)that claims it will cool up to a 460 with A/C in it.

I run it with a radiator shroud and flex fan and I haven't had any issues with it overheating here in the desert of SoCal. This includes running the A/C.

While I don't have a 56, I have a 71 429 in my 55. I am running a 3 row aluminum radiator with a 16" electric fan and a 180 thermostat and have not had any heating problems since install and breakin. It stays at 180 degrees no matter what the outside temp is. I may add that this engine is built pretty healthy with a 291TH Comp roller cam, roller lifters, etc. And cruising speed is about 3000RPM with the tranny and gearset I have in it.

I was incorrect. It is a 2 row aluminum and I purchased on Ebay. I bought it from Jam n Motorsports and it is an American radiator. AE53-56. It was 184.95 when I bought it.
