Dual fans with shroud (new unit from Rockauto) plus Flex A Lite fan controller (part # 31163).
$100 plus shipping.
Requires only 3.5" of space between the radiator and water pump pulley.
Just bolt it in; install the temp sensor, and attach the red wire to your starter solenoid.

Darn, wish I'd noticed this before I bought a dual fan setup for our 58 from RockAuto :(
It's laying in my shop waiting on me.

So why are you selling now? Looks like you had it installed?
Have been thinking of doing the dual fan!

Went back to a 6-blade mech. fan and a shroud. Temp is in control now when driving around, but slowly climbs when sitting.
With the new engine (a hopped-up 460) and the electric fans, the temp would slowly climb at highway speeds.
Seems I had to pick one or the other, and can't have it both ways right now!
The setup I am selling would be fine for anyone with a 352 or 390 in their car.

This might be an issue for me also, I purchased a 410 short block and in the process of hopping it up. Can I ask what shroud you used on your fan now and was it an easy fit?

I have a cheap, chromed half-shroud that I bought from Speedway for like 35 bucks. Better than nothing at all, for sure.
What I want to eventually do is have a full shroud fabbed up out of sheet metal.
I got the best cooling efficiency with the fan blades positioned halfway into the shroud. The 6-blade fan I have is a rigid unit; not one of those "flex" fans. 17" diameter.
