I'm not too familiar with the nomenclature so I need help on the "model". What I need is a radiator for a '55 truck. It doesn't have to be in usable shape; I need it for a model to build a new one. I'm pretty sure other years will fit, so I hope someone can tell me what fits and also that somebody has one.

Sorry, I should have said a '55 1/2 ton pickup.

Thanks

Radiator size/capacity depended on the engine. Which engine? Model E5 = Champion 6. E6 = Commander 6. E7 = V8.

Thanks for helping me narrow it down. The truck originally had a V8. That has been replaced with a 500 cubic inch Cadillac V8 (and the Cadillac radiator). Now we want to add A/C and since the Cadillac radiator is in front of the core support there is no room for a condensor. Time to install a radiator in the correct location and provide room for the condensor. I know I'll need more cooling capacity than the original radiator, but I need an original to get started.

Thanks again
