Default Best radiator for a Ford 302 in a 47 Tudor?

Guys, I'm trying to update a 1947 Ford Tudor with a small block 302 V8. It currently has the orignial radiator but I'd like to replace that with a new aluminum radiator that can also handle an AC condenser. If someone has already replaced the radiator, what brand and size did you replace it with?

Might be a good question for the HAMB. But any name brand alum radiator should work. There are radiators set up for this combination, but I do not know any part numbers.

Several choices from several different sellers offering aluminum radiators on the low end price wise to Walker or Brassworks on the high end with brass radiators that can be custom configured according to your specific needs. Lee at Brassworks worked with me to insure the radiator for my '39 p/u with an 8ba was exactly what I needed.

Take a look at US Radiator for medium priced radiator.
