I'd recommend the NPD part number 8146-1B for $32.00 It's a reproduction unit for the '65-'66

NPD's N.C. store's number is 800-368-6451

Donnie, sometimes you can get a mismatch between shroud and fan and the result is ineffective. Suggest you consider calling Classic Auto Air in Tampa, FL and ordering their air conditioning shroud and six blade fan for your '66. This combo will pull a lot more air than the stock fan and reproduction shroud. I know, I've used both approaches.

If you really want to get serious, get a clutch fan or an electric fan. Six blade fans waste lots of horsepower.

STEVE ,

I have a six bladed flex fan on my 65 - 289 , you know the mild build I have . How is this fan wasting horse power , and , how much horse power am I losing ? Because of our messed up government insurance , if I go to a clutch or electric fan I lose my collector plate status. What would be the best fan to go with , get good cooling and not lose HP ?
