new or junkyard electric fan

OK Boys going to the junk yard this week need to know which electric fan to pull (if I can find any American Cars) for my 64 Falcon with a 302 (3core brass rad)- I have heard TURUS(sp?) or am I better off with a new 2700 CFM fan? Thanks for ur opinion-Vic

Measure your Radiator core & take a tape with you. Try to find the largest Fan that will cover the most of the core. Get as much of the wiring as you can & Relays if possible.
Taurus, Crown Vic, Merc Mystique, Lincoln Mark VIII, Dodge Intrepid & clones, also check the Mini Vans w/V6 & A/C.

The dual fan set-up from a Ford Windstar is another good choice. Cools my blown BBC good.
