Whose nose you using?
Mine is a speedway nose and a 65 mustang 3 row fits great(napa 135.00)
You can just see it in the pic...

I think I can see it in one of the pics, but I assume that's an electric pusher fan in front of the radiator?

If you go to Jegs or Summit, you can probably find a similar sized radiator in aluminum for less than double the money for the Napa part. It would cool a bit better if you're in a hot climate or worried about it overheating on slow speed cruises or stop & go traffic.
