Default Interesting FAN SHROUD on 60 - Ebay item

Interesting fan shroud on 1960 with AC on Ebay # 260020017232. Doesnt look like the Dearborn Classic one because the mounts look different. Any thoughts on this one?

It looks very similar to the shroud that I put om 1960 Thunderbird that I have that came from a 1960 Ford:

It is interesting that he has a very similar PCV valve arrange like my 1959 Thunderbird:

I like the Mark IV A/C system. I have seen a half dozen of them on Squarebirds to date:

And . . . It looks lit it's "dented" at the top (Metal????)

I'm sure a few came with em (or were added on by Ford dealers)

As I've stated before, I've seen one.

That's a crazy AC unit! How on earth does it work from the trunk? How on earth does it get cold air to the front seat passengers?

Looks cool, though.

It actually fit very well. I just needed to drill and tap some holes on the top and bottom radiator support.

I sent the seller an email and he responded that the shroud came off of a 1960 Galaxie and that he had put a 5 blade fan on.

Good work John. Then that is the same shroud that I put on my 1960 Golde Top. I have yet to see a original 1960 Thunderbird with a shroud.
