If you click the "More Info" link on that page, I think you can get dimensions of the product.
 
Also, Merry Christmas!

do you have air conditioning or not. I will be putting air conditioning I mind this year and have a radiator it's only 3 years old. I may be upgrading to a the higher capacity radiator for the air conditioning um I will let you know if mine is available

does anyone know if a 2,3 mustang ii radiator is the same or very close in size and will fit in a bobcat/pinto?
i have found a couple on ebay and dont want to buy if its going to take a lot of cutting and fab work to get it in at factory car with only 38,000 miles!
thanks for any input/.

This was my new 2.3 A/C radiator I put in my wagon. It had a driver side upper inlet that measures 1 1/2" & a passenger side lower return that I think is 1 1/4" if I remember right.

nice looking radiator pinto5.0 , but ford in its better mind made the 2.3 and the 2.8 to have the hose outlet and inlets on the oppisite sides, if i needed a 2.3 can find them all day long for about 150.00,   found a company that makes a rad for the 2.8 but its for the mustang ii, and the measurements online are about 5/8 taller then my bobcat, so not sure if it will fit.
thanks

Why not go to a rad shop & have them make one for you ?
