John Karasaki came up with this excellent fix when the
same occured on his V8Q:
Used the threaded hollow rod from a bicycle (brake cable adjuster with
hole to allow the cable to slide through the middle of it). Threaded
this into the broken off nipple. Now this piece had a threaded hollow
shaft in it. Threaded this into the radiator. Worked great!
If it doesn't work, or you find the radiator to be
brittle, I have a good one off a parts car, or the
best thing to do if you plan on keeping the car is
to get a Modine all copper/brass unit. They sell
for about $200 and are readily available.
