The 1967 six cylinder fan shroud is different from a 1965-66 shroud and should work better, also. The 1965-66 shrouds are primarily designed to allow a "fan shroud" decal to be installed and are otherwise worthless.
Best,
Al

I disagree completely. More than once, I have seen the 64-66 shroud and no other change improve cooling.

Probably not, at least not well. The smallblock 67-69 shroud will not fit a 6 cyl car, the lower outlet is on the wrong side. The 1970 20" smallblock shroud might fit, but I've never tried it.

OMG. That is a real, no-kidding 64-66 6 cylinder fan shroud. I've never seen one in person, and I've been around these cars a LONG time.

Sure does not look like much of a shroud, is that why they added the rubber seal on the top of it?

There's no rubber seal on the shroud, 6 or 8 cylinder.

Thats the real McCoy! they are tough to find, I have one on my fastback,
just found one at a swap meet, couldn't believe it!
First one I have seen in better than 10 years! Glad I have a spare now.

The fan blade doesn't look like a Mustang fan for A/C, looks like one
for a Fairlane, the Mustang fan has blades with a real aggresive pitch.


65 Fastback 2+2 Rangoon red, red interior
6 cyl, AT, A/C, P.S., P.B.

MCA# 00945

Previously owned Mustangs:

someone told me they did have them on the 6 cly. cars because they were overheating when they got in traffic, I saw a listing in a parts book for the rubber seal aslo.
