My 68 origionally came off the assembly line with an straight inline-6 engine. It now has a small block 350. Only thing is that the radiator is still the same size as the origional one it was manufactured with.
Do you think I should go with a bigger one, or keep the one I have?

Does it overheat? If not, then don't fix what ain't broke. If it's a two core and you're under 3K RPM at highway speeds, it should be fine.

THAT somes it up
Orginal radiators where way over built
Car owners where and are notoius for not servicing the radiator
The stock radiator will run for yrs, with yrs of cores blocked up....till one day that 1 extra core tips the scales
The 6 cylinder radiator is big enough to handle a street V8 even with a few cores blocked
Keep it maintained...will most proberly blow a core before over heating....
But in the meant time keep you eye open over the next couple yrs for a new cheap V8 radiator

No, it doesnt overheat, but also I haven't driven it very far since I got it back from the body shop!
I guess I'll go with what you guys say "If it aint broke, don't fix it" :)
