In a 1961 Thunderbird the transmission oil cooler lines are on the passenger side. This was found to not cool the transmission as well as having the cooler on the driver side which is the "cool" tank.  In 62 Ford changed to having the cooler in the driver side for better trans cooling. We recommend changing your transmission lines to go to the driver side and using a 62 - 63 T-Bird radiator. If you want to keep the car exactly original, we can special order you a new radiator with the cooler on the passenger side or we can recore your original.
The radiator pictured here is of a 62-63 radiator with the cooler on the driver side.

This radiator was designed to exactly replace the OEM radiator. It is made to bolt in exactly as a factory replacement radiator would. It is available in two core designs. It is available in either three rows of  1/2" inch tubes on 9/16" centers or on 3/8" centers for a high efficiency core. A three row high efficiency core will cool the same as a regular four row core without losing any existing fan clearance.   Four row models are not available due to limited fan clearance. An internal automatic transmission cooler is built into this radiator. Core dimensions of this radiator are approximately 23 1/2" between the tanks and 17 1/2" tall. It will fit the same as and function better than the original.
 Even the largest radiator cannot cool properly without good airflow. Consider replacing your stock 4 blade fan with a six or seven blade fan for optimum cooling.
