I'm pretty sure the 289 cars did not come equipped with fan shrouds. I was looking at an ad for a low mileage, original 65 Galaxie with a 289. No fan shroud.can anybody tell me about fan shrouds on a 1966 fairlane 289 auto. my car doesn't have one. fan pulley has an extension putting the blades within 1 1/2" of the rad, is that sufficient? should I use an electric one? should this car have had an fan shroud?
