Radiator for 302

Hello, im needing help. I inherited a 63 unibody from my dad. Its been sitting for 10 years. The radiator was stolen a few years back. The truck has a 302 in it. Ive been trying to find a radiator that will bolt up right but having no luck. Will a v6 radiator from the same year truck cool the 302 engine? Im not sure what year the 302 is. I believe its a 2 barrel though. Does anyone recommend a decent radiator? Ive been looking at champion radiators...what are your thoughts on those? Thank you for your help!

I'm not sure if your core support is much different from my '66 but I'm running a Champion aluminum 3 row radiator (part#CC433B) with a '92 302. I have 2-12" electric fans. It's more than adequate cooling for the truck. In fact, I think a 2 row radiator would be fine. Here's a link to a recent thread about radiators. Hope that helps. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/12...radiators.html
