i went to the junk yard the other day to pick up a radiator (the old one lost its life to the hands of a deer) and couldnt find a fox body (no surprise) but i ended up taking a radiator from a 90's ford town car with a 5.0. i did a rough measurement (with how many shoe lengths it was) and it looked fairly close so i bought it and took it home. when i measured it up to the old one, i was at the unfortunate surprise that it was about 2 inches longer then the one i had. would this still fit and work?? it still has all of the same holes for the coolant hoses. :headscratch:

i tried it i have a crown vic 5.0 and a mustang, the radiator on the crown vic is much wider and will not fit but as with anything with excessive modification you can make it fit but i dont think it is worth it as you can probably find a radiator for the mustang on a local craigslist, ebay, or i bought a brand new aluminum one from a local pep boys for $99

If it'll bolt up, you can try it.
