The 32 highboy radiator will do the trick. Some trimming is needed here and there, new mounting brackets, too, but it will fit in the assigned space without reworking any body panels.

ZZ strikes again!

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

It fits. I had to trim a little bit off of the bottoms of the side panels on the front of the radiator to clear the taper of the grill. After that, it settled right in place. May need to do a bit more trimming for clearances, but that can wait until I know for sure.

Taking a sawsall to a brand new aluminum radiator is a scary endeavor.


Now I get to build the new mounting brackets.

Not to my knowledge. I surely haven't seen that car. WOW! I'll be watching.
