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!

No F100 had a V6 until 1982.

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
