not directly, no. consider that you may spend enough in parts and labor to make it fit that the "good deal" is no longer a good deal.

i have a radiator out of my v8 71 torino(extra of course) in my DD.
not anymore fabbing than installing a saab rad. still using the stock fan.
can drive all the way home from work (about 14 miles) in 90* heat, and the fan doesnt come on. sometimes i will manually turn it on if im stuck in traffic, but regular in town driving, no need.

Been out to Lywood Pull-a-part yet?
Just do the Saab thing OR spend the 150-160 for the shortie Ebay rads.
