The 4.0L Explorer w/ A/C rad will do that. It's a crossflow and not too wide. It measures 23" wide, 19 1/2" tall and the core is 2 1/4" thick. It mounts with two pegs facing down and flanges that bolt forward to the body. This can be adapted though.

Thunderbolts used a 63 Galaxie crossflow thats much larger, the sheetmetal needs to be trimmed either side of the opening for the stock rad to fit that.

93-95 at least the later ones like 99 are HUGE

A mid 90's Ranger with 4.0L and air has that rad too.

Where are the inlet and outlet? Better choice than a 5.0 radiator?

inlet at top right and outlet at bottom left like most any Ford 1970 and newer.

5.0L Mustang rad would be too wide to look right, but of course thats exactly what i just put in my Fairlane, the 427 has been cracking heads and stuff with it's overheating problems, i got rid of the little rad and now have a huge 3 row aluminum Ron Davis racing rad. The monster cooled a 1400hp 5.0L last year.

The round track suppliers sell a pretty decent lookin cross flow aluminum radiator that is priced a lot cheaper than some companies. I got one to use in the rust bucket for around $140.
