i'm currently looking at buying the WH Ron Davis aluminum rad
hope its the better choice because out here temperatures rise up to 120 and all my offroading is done in dunes,
i hope this radiator will maintain the 302 cool.

Interesting page. Says, aluminum is lighter, and the design of aluminum rads( few longer cores) can be more effective at higher speeds, but at lower speeds the old design ( 4 smaller cores) is more efficient.
Its only 1 data point, but we all knew that copper was a better heat conductor.
