First up on my 69 f100: I need a new radiator. I’m no mechanic, and I’m learning as I go, but my truck has a 390 from a 68 fairlane. What kind of radiator would I install? A new aluminum or look for a classic copper? And does it fit even though it’s a different engine?

The different engine source isn't an issue, the chances are you would have had a similar engine to begine with. Brass radiators have become hard to find so more than likely anything new you would find is going to be aluminum.
