Anyone use a crossflow rad?

Has anyone ever found a cross flow rad that fit our trucks with a little cobbling? I'm doing an LS swap in my 65. I'm planning ahead for the rad and air intake. I have this idea that I would like the intake and outlet to both be on the pass. side and the air intake to go toward the drivers side. Much neater than that long upper hose going across. I'm told that a standard type rad should have the hoses on opposite sides. Cross flow would work though. I'm going to ask the same question on the LS swap forum but I thought I would ask here for more specific 60-66 owners.

I have a Mattson cross-flow in my '66. Both outlets are on the pass side plus a steam line connection.

It has vertical flanges on both sides and attaches to the stock core support.

Well, what can I say. It's a top notch radiator made in Carson, CA and not the Far East. Mine has been in service for close to 10 years and hasn't missed a lick yet.

Re: Anyone use a crossflow rad?

I used a Superior radiator in my '51 and plan to do the same on my '64 Suburban. US made, not too expensive and you can order with or without steam vent.
