I've been looking for a fan shroud for my 64 Belvedere big block for a little while. It gets a little warm when I get in heavy traffic or sit at idle for very long. I'm at a good steady 185 when I'm flying down the road. I've looked at the stamped steel shrouds sold by Megaparts and a few other places and they look ok but seem a little pricey to me at $305 for the shroud and mounting kit. I don't remember a lot of the pre 66 B bodies having a factory shroud. Was it only on certain combinations? Any advice is appreciated.

I think most of the ones that had the shrouds were the A/C cars. There has been some conversation about the shrouds on early 90's Ranger trucks fitting but its not for sure.

Haven't heard about the possibility of a Ranger shroud fitting. Will see if I can find one in the yards around here and see if it will fit.

Saw an article a few years back about making your own out of aluminum. Can you weld or have someone do it for you ? I think I have the mag somewhere !!

Moose, If you have any more info on that, I'd love to see it. I'm in the same spot with my Coronet.
