    Need the upper and lower radiator mounting brackets and or the radiator also for a 1966 galaxie 500 7 litre (428) convertable. I am helping my father in law with the restoration and can't find the brackets anywhere . His son long ago stuffed a mopar radiator in there with bailing wire :-(

    Welcome to the Forum
    If you are talking about the rubber upper an lower that connect to the tanks
    try Summit Racing

    Thank you for the welcomes. I have been a car nut since I bought my 67 mustang in 1981 for $500.
    I checked summit again just to make sure I didn't miss anything. The rubber insulators that go between the brackets and radiator are available but I need the actual brackets. I have found where I can get a new radiator unless someone has a good used one around :)

    You may try e-bay
    I wonder if the 390 has the same measurements?

    I think any of the fullsize fords with big blocks of that era would work. I am keeping an eye on ebay.

    The upper radiator bracket for all V8 engines is C5AZ 8A193 A.
    Application is all V8 engines for 1965 & 1966 full sized Ford.
    (Full sized Mercury is different)

    The lower radiator bracket for all V8 engines is C5AZ 8052 D. Two are required.
    Application is all V8 engines for 1965 & 1966 full sized Ford.
    (Full sized Mercury is different)

    The rubber pad for both would be a different part and not included in the part numbers listed above.

    I suspect this is an upper mount.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/1966-FORD-...ash=item467a0dbefd:g:7CAAAOSwda1avRLt&vxp=mtr

    The listing states it is a C6AZ 8A193 A. The parts manual I have that was printed in 1975, well after the part was superceded, that a C6AZ A does not exist.

    The 65-66 part is a C5AZ 8A193 A. The 1967 part is a C5AZ 8A193 D. And in 1968 the part is C8AZ 8A193 D.

    No C6AZ 8A193 A is listed in the Ford Master Parts Catalog. (MPC)

    An additional description in the MPC is straight legs. The one in the ebay link has straight legs.

    Looks like the right one and not as rusty as a listing I found.

    It is a NOS part. Brand new never installed. I would expect it to be shiny.

    It may be some odd ball replacement part. Some times that happened do to an issue and Ford never went back and updated the MPC. So a parts person places an order for a C5AZ A and gets a C6AZ A. <<<<< And that is a guess on my part based on my experiences.
