There are plenty of original looking units out there that have been built to provide higher output. You could also look into doing a 3G alternator (highly recommended by many here, I can't speak for or against it myself), or you could go the 1-wire GM style alternator route (not really recommended but it works if wired up correctly). Your final choice here will really depend on how much "stuff" you plan on running.
I've always used quality stock style replacements without issue, but Flowkooler and Edelbrock have some interesting options too.
I run a 24 inch champion radiator on my mild 302 (it's actually happystang's old radiator) and it works great, but is probably overkill for what I actually need. Plenty of cars running around out there with stock size radiators that do fine, but again this will depend on your build.
Send your original distributor to the Mustang Barn along with all the specs for your car that you have (cam, rear gear, transmisson, carb, intake, etc..) along with an HONEST assessment of how you will use the car, and Dan won't steer you wrong.
Offhand I'd say Autolite 4100 or the Summit carb which is basically all the good parts of the 4100 and a Holley carb (I can't remember the part number right now, but I'm sure someone will link it) I, nor anyone else can suggest anything more specific than that without some other specs and the intended use of the car.
All the information I gave is pretty general, to have anything more specific you'll need to provide other specs (intake, heads, cam, etc..) and the intended use of the car. We can't give good recommendations without some more information.
EDIT: Sorry, I was typing this when you posted the “missing” information. I'll let those that are running the Eddy kit take it from here.
