Are you ready for a laugh? Three years ago the radiator in my 300U gave up. Just started cutting hay with it. Pushed for time to get it back in the field working. Was restoreing a 1965 Mustang at the time. New radiator for Mustang was sitting there in the box. Some extra hoses and waa laa. Aftermarket aluminum Mustang radiator for less than $150. Been three seasons and its still in there. Original? Not even close!

I would imagine a radiator meant for a Mustang with, say, a 289 and air conditioning would have plenty of capacity for cooling a C169 or C175. I do know that there were 2-row and 4-row radiators for the '65 Mustang, as I have an example of each in my barn. I think there was also a 3-row variety.

I've read that hot rodders will sometimes have custom aluminum radiators made. I don't know about the cost, but it may be possible to have something fabricated that's close to the original look without getting too expensive -- just a thought.

Yep. 3 core aluminum Mustang radiator cools that 4 cylinder quite nicely. For extra insurance I added a pusher fan in front of the radiator to help. Not as much capacity as original but more efficient I think. The Mustang radiator works well because it is tall and narrow. No modifications to it to make it fit. Bottom hose was on the wrong side though.
