Radiator help!

So I'm guessing I need a new higher capacity radiator to keep my 67 mustang cooler, but I don't have 300-600 to spend on one, what should I get and is there any I could get at a scrap yard that will fit?

What do you have now? 2-row? How hot is it running? Could be some other issues. You might be able to get a rebuilt one from radiator shop

Boiled over, through the cap? You need a 3 or 4 row. Do you have the heater core hooked up? What coolant mix are you using?

We are in Austin with many 100+ days with the worst traffic in the Nothern Hemisphere. I have had to do PLENTY with our '65 to get it to operate and cool with these conditions. Dont get so obsessed on rows, but on the SIZE of the tubes in the radiator. A 4 row with small tubes can be more inefficient than a 3 row with larger tubes. FIRST thing I would try if I were you on your budget is to get a a good fan shroud. This can make a BIG difference if you are overheating when at a stop. If your car cools o.k. while driving, but heats up significantly while in traffic, try a good shroud first and see if that helps.

Here is what I ended up doing to make it bulletproof:
High Eff. 3 Row Aluminum Radiator
High Flo water pump
3" Fan Shroud
180* thermostat
Water Wetter added
