Default 1969 Bluebird Inn with 390 truck engine - radiator issues

Hi All

Just wondering if anyone has a radiator for sale for a 1969 Bluebird inn with a 390 Truck Engine in it or would be able to point me in the right direction of where perhaps i may source one?

Is the front a ford f-600 700 or 800? I would be looking for the radiator under the ford model. If you tell them your looking for a Bluebird radiator they are going to turn you away. How bad is the radiator? If the tanks are in decent shape a good radiator shop can recore it.
