Default '37 Pickup radiator replacement

Anyone out there know of a replacement radiator for a '37 pickup? I had one and took it to a radiator shop where they proceeded to put a new core in it by ordering one at least 1 inch too short, then beating the top and bottom tanks in until they fit...well fit is not a good word here.

This is not a restoration, so any replacement that will allow me to get proper fitment of the hood and grille shell will work. Thanks in advance.

Brassworks is always a good source for an original type, but there may be cheaper aluminum ones available.

Walker Radiator would probably be a good replacement or try US Radiator.

Dennis Carpenter had and may still have a 37 truck radiator. Give Bob a call and see if he still has it.

I have a very nice '37 Ford trk radiator that has been sitting in my garage for 40 years.
The radiator is actually a V8 60 however changing the in/out pipes to the larger 85 HP style would be quite easy.
Radiator is large and heavy so shipping would be expensive.
