Many have used a mid '90's V-8 Mustang radiator with success using the small block Chevy engine. Cost new is around $100-150.

Radiator cost

Frisco Had a good answer. Measure what will fit in your truck, then go down to the Radiator shop and look one up that's about the same size, hell they might be able to get one for your truck.

I have a Mustang in my 33, the photo on top, but I have a %.0 Ford, but it would keep a chevy cool.

A radiator for a '65 or '66 Mustang is a very nice fit, and works well, as will a Tri 5 Chevy radiator, but the Mustangs are usually cheaper. Be sure to get one with two 1" rows if your engine is built a bit. A friend is using one and it cost him $159.

This^. measure what fits, see what side you need hoses to be on, then grab a bag of tools(don't forget the tape measure) and go to the pull a part. I have found really nice all metal radiators there for $35 with a swap out warranty.
