65-70 Fan Shroud


Does anyone have, a B-body shroud for sale?   Does anyone have, a picture of one?.. I bought a repo fibreglass model (very nice) but it is for a 25 inch rad and mine is a 27.5   I installed a Aluminum rad, and it has a nice bracket, to hold a shroud..Maybe a Beaumont shroud?  confused

The 65-70 B-body shrouds vary from year to year.  What year are you looking for?  I have one for a 68 small block, and the 69-70 are generally the same.  Come to think of it, I don't think the 65-67 B-body's used a shroud, but I could be wrong.

As Mark indicates, even in 69 there were a couple different ones available.  Small Block vs Big Block, Auto vs Standard trans, Heavy Duty Cooling, etc.

Ideally the fan is inside the shroud a half inch or so.

If you could provide add'n info it'd steer us in the right direction.

You are correct!   65-66 some had, and some didn't   My car did not have shroud.. It  had a tiny piece of metal, that became limp after 40 years, it sort of guided your hand to the fan blades .lol.  My car never has had a heating problem, but I thought it did, after I installed ELECTRIC guage... It read 205-210 and I got a heat reading thingie and it showed it running 185-190   I added new aluminum rad and thought shroud would look cool!!  I have a flex fan on it, and  would like something for a little finger protection   My Ventura II was changed over from 6 to 8 and has a origonal 6 cyl plastic part that curves over rad top for protection   Maybe I don't need a shroud...confuse
