need a shroud for a 47 ford

I need a shroud for my 47 ford , running mechanical fan. bought one for a 47 ford didn't fit. need one 21 inches wide and 19 inches tall, where do i start, i found one place that will custom build me one. Got a friend looking at salvage yards. This is a pretty small shroud, probably have to have it custom made.

I'm using one from Speedway, it's universal of course. Actually it's a chromed band about six inches wide that you shape around your fan and fasten with ties. Seems to work well for me.

One of the best TECH addition on the HAMB covered this. It an older thread but a good one.

If you want to do a custom shroud.

Building your own shroud
