time to abandon my old 2 core rad

Hello All
I have a 68 3spd std trans SBC with the original 2 core rad and 4 blade fan. This worked great when I lived in Canada. Now I am in Tennessee, and am installing Classic Air AC as part of my total restoration. What do you guys suggest for a new cooling system. I am considering a new 3 core 21" rad from Ricks, keep my factory fan shroud, and go with a 17" 6 blade fan as recommended by Classic AC.
Is there a better rad than the US Radiator sold? I don't need the authenticity of the Harrison Rad and have read about a few problems with these rads.
What about a fan and a fan clutch? Maybe a flexalite fan & clutch?

Thanks for any suggestions

Thanks Kev
I have read all these threads about cooling. I have decided to try a new rad from US Radiator, and keep my stock shroud. Brian Lewis seems sold on the Flexalite blade and clutch - I am going to add those and see how she runs.
