MODELS STRIPPED OIL COOLING RADIATO

Engine Cooling problem

I have a 1972 Mercedes 350SL with a radiator that has an Oil cooling radiator attached to the left. Where the oil supply (or return) tube attaches at the top there is a round nut (similar to a bathroom faucet supply tube). The male end coming from the radiator is stripped and I can't get the nut tightened. So - of course oil is everywhere.

Can this be fixed or do I seriously need to buy a whole new radiator.
