    If you have a 26, use it. A 360 will especially like it!
    To make a factory 22 fit a 26" and look correct you need a T square, 3/8 drill bit or spot weld cutter from HF, a cut off wheel, wide jaw vise grips, and maybe a welder.

    Remove the bulged inward sections 1 5/8" wide on pass side, and 2 1/4" wide on driver. Hammer the remaining flat to support against a dolly or even a block of wood if you don't have body tools. Use the wide jaw to bend a new lip 1/8" wide forward. Then simply replace the square nuts you cut out of the old pieces. Shazam you have a 26" core support.

    Brett, here's some more details on that with pix I can't send by message to help you.

    When you're done you'll have an actual opening of 27-1/4" with your mounting locations 7/8" outboard on each side to a total of 29" c/c. The opening based on your car's construction will be approx, 1/4" inboard of the faceplate capping the front of the pass side unibody rail, and 1" toward center from driver side. See pix and note there is some slop in these cars construction. Bottom holes should be about 3/4" up from those rail end caps however this one is 11/16" on pass side. From there, place your radiator in and mark your top hole locations to cut open. I've got 8-3/4" up on driver side and 8-1/8" up on pass side. I really dont recall if they're different for application but this is from an AC car so may be. I always just slide the rad in on the installed bottom bolts and mark for top so it fits that car for sure.

    Sorry if the pix go sideways, the site orients to landscape so I expect it's going to crane your neck...
