69-72 Ford Torino Radiators Question

I need a radiator for my 69 Torino w/351C, but I notice the online radiator sites don't even list a 351C/5.7 L option for the radiator choice, whereas the 70-72 models do. Also, strangely, the 70 & 71 replacements are pricey at almost $200, whereas the 72's are only $140. Does anybody know if the 72 Torino radiator is the same size as the 69 ? Were there any significant chassis changes going from the 69-72 ?If anybody out there has a 72 Torino, I'd be most appreciative if you could drop a tape measure down the radiator face and give me the dimensions. Also, does anyone know of an online site that has radiator facts and figures ? Even the people selling the things don't seem to have the numbers, and are unwilling to get the warehouses to open boxes and make measurements. Thanks for your help.

i wish.

just a suggestion, look on ebay, find one for sale, and email the owner. maybe you can find one that wouldn't mind checking. can't hurt to ask. as for members here, i, off the top of my head can't think of anyone who has a torino. Kultulz might would know if anyone would.

or, check with a good radiator shop in your area, a good shop will know what will work. and work best.

Found a site-radiatorworld.com, that lists dimensions of radiators. So, question answered, but thanks for your input.

i have a 74 torino but that doesn't help much


my guess would be that as compression fell off, the rads used were smaller (thus cheaper) but i really don't know

you could try asking here
