Do they make a radiator for the 75 Mustang II that has the cap located on the top tank that will fit in the stock location with out mods? This mustang is a Ghia with the 302 v-8 and the cap is located in the upper radiator hose. I want to use a one piece upper hose so it's easer to get parts with out having to order and wait for the stock fit.

You should just be able to swap it out with a later model radiator. Then just get the appropriate hose for it.

I was gonna do that with my '76 had the filler on the hose; I bought a radiator that had the cap on the radiator itself.

Not a difficult fix at all.

Years ago, I replaced my radiator with one for what was listed as a '76 at AutoZone. It was identical to the one I already had in there (cap on the radiator). As far as I could tell, it had the original radiator before I replaced it. I have had my II since June 1981.
