Im in need of a new radiator for my 65 Galaxie. Did the 352 and 390 come with the same size radiator? Reason I ask is, I found a radiator on ebay but the seller states:
(Fits Automatic/ Manual Transmission Models with 302/ 351/ 390/ 428/ 429 Cu. In. V8 Engines)
(Might Require Modification to Fit 289/ 352/ 427 V8 or l6 Models)
My car came with the 352 when new, but a 390 was installed by the PO. The radiator in question is below. I hope the one pictured is not the one being sent, the bottom outlet should be on the other side.

i would say 352 and 390 use same radiator...
hipo would have a additional cooling row...

and should look more like the one in this listing...

also should not need any modification in order to fit in front of a 352 or 390...as they are externally the same...

It has an A/T cooler and maybe some holes to attach a fan shroud. But fitting the top bracket and the lower hose may be problematic. Give us all a report when it comes in.
