Guys who have done vintage air on a 47-53 Chevy Truck.

How thick of a radiator can you use with a vintage AC kit? You have the condenser and dryer in front of the radiator. How thick can the radiator be? 2, 3 or 4 row? I think the 4 row is 2 3/4 inch deep, 3 row 2 1/4.

Have you asked Vintage Air themselves?
Or you can ask them for the name of a shop they work with that often does installations in old Chevy truck. There may even be a shop in your neighborhood...

Yes I did call them. Was waiting for a call back when I posted this. They said 3 row is fine. Standard size. I was trying to stuff the biggest radiator I could in there. The problem is I would have to punt the kit hard lines and reinvent the wheel.
