Default 55/56 Ford Fairlane Radiator dimensions?

Does anybody have the correct size dimensions of a stock 55/56 Ford Radiator?
Trying to find an original or second choice would be an aftermarket. Need the height from bottom of the lower tank to the top of the upper tank. Thanks for any help on this. V8 , 272/292.

The Specs are listed here a lot of guys over the years have used Champion radiators in their 50's Fords https://www.ebay.com/itm/1954-1955-1...Cclp%3A2334524

I've got a used one in the garage but it doesn't have the side mounting brackets on it. It may take some time to access since it is in a box buried amongst other boxes of parts for sale. I'll go take a look and measure for you.

Thanks Dave, please measure from the bottom of the lower tank to the top of the top tank inlet neck.

Check with Auto City Classics
https://www.autocityclassic.com



These dimensions are from the web site:
Core size: 19 1/2" wide, 19 3/4" tall, 2 1/2" thick
Overall size (widest point): 23 1/4" wide, 25" tall, 4" thick



They also sell on Ebay and what they list on their web site isn't always the same as on the auction site.

My spare original '55 Ford full-sized car radiator measures 24-3/4" high from top of top tank to bottom of bottom tank.
The radiator core itself (NOT including the side mounting brackets) is 18-3/4" wide.
The depth of the radiator core itself is 2 inches (NOT including the side mounting brackets).
If you need a good radiator, this one is clean, doesn't leak and is for sale. Priced low as most of my stuff is. Look on my Late V8 parts for sale ad encaptioned "Lots of '55/56 Ford parts 4 sale. If you want photos, send me a pm and I will send to you.
