Hey there, If you have a 1960 ElCamino with 348 and 4 speed also with air. I would assume it would have the biggest radiator available. Does anyone know a code for the proper radiator or dimensions. OLDELKY59GUY

I would imaging the height and width would be the same as the sbc radiator being that it has to fit in the radiator frame. As for the thickness, maybe an extra row (?).

I believe your assumption is correct.

I do not have data on a '60 348. But the '63 409 has a 'thicker' core and has a larger frontal area than the L6, or sb V8 (the 300 hp 327 shares the same frontal area as the 409).

I don't believe it will give you part numbers but you may find some relevant radiator data here:

I did not look; I'm too lazy. But the '63 version has data on the cooling system and radiator for the various engine options.
