If your 1965-1966 Mustang's 260 or 289 engine has been overheating lately, the culprit could be your fan shroud. Your Pony relies on its fan and fan shroud to keep it nice and cool, especially when you're idling or driving at a low speed. This Scott Drake Plastic Fan Shroud will direct the air flow from your Mustang's fan to the radiator and help prevent your engine from overheating.

This C3DZ-8146-3 Scott Drake 3-1/2" Wide Plastic Fan Shroud efficiently draws cool air in through your Mustang's radiator when you're driving at a low speed and when you're idling, which is when your Mustang is the mostly likely to overheat. Made from heat-resistant ABS plastic, the fan shroud enhances the fan's cooling abilities while also offering more protection for the fan blades.

Please Note: Fan shroud brackets are sold separately.

*This fan shroud can also be used on 1965-1966 6-cylinder Mustangs with a manual transmission, but minor trimming will be needed for proper installation.

Scott Drake Fan Shroud Plastic 3-1/2" Wide 260/289 1965-1966 is rated 3.6666666666666665 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works, but needs work This shroud does the job, but it could be better designed and marketed. First, it comes with no instructions, and requires a special set of mounting brackets. They also come with no instructions, so you have to figure it out yourself. Although the radiator is currently held in place with four symmetrically square holes, two on each side, the shroud holes are not symmetrical. They are offset upwards on the passenger side and downwards on the driver side. The brackets are what do the offset. The offset is there I guess to allow you to get a socket wrench in to attach the underlying radiator-to-frame bolts. But the brackets are thin, flexible metal and bend/distort easy when you attach the fan shroud, which is of flexible black ABS plastic. Odds are that when you finally get the shroud in place, the blades will be touching at some spot, as the bracket alignment and shroud flexibility guarantee some misalignment and out-of-roundness. The four holes on the shroud which hold the shroud to the brackets are elongated vertically, but not enough. In my case, I had to get a drill bit and elongate them even more vertically to allow enough up and down movement of the shroud to keep it away from the fan blades. Fortunately it is soft plastic and reams out easily. Also, even for my three row radiator, the three-row brackets are a little too long and initially placed the shroud 1/4 to 1/8 inch away from the radiator, shaking like crazy. You may need to bend the brackets to reduce the space between the two ears to bring the shroud up against the radiator. A better design would have been to keep the shroud mounting holes in square symmetrical alignment with the radiator mounting holes/bolts and use a long common bolt to hold both the radiator and the shroud in rigid alignment. If I were Scott Drake, I would redesign this to mount better and easier. It would not take much effort. I would also include instructions and/or a video to show how to make adjustments.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Use ONLY on stock Radiator I bought this for my 1965 mustang coupe with built 303 - 4-speed and 4.11 gears! I'm running the aluminum radiator that everyone runs! I also am running the smaller thin blade 17" flex fan. This shroud does not seal against the radiator! Because of it's position and the gaps at top and bottom, the fan doesn't draw any air through the radiator! You hold your hand behind the shroud, and rev the engine and there is no air current at any RPM! You can actually feel a bit of air going through the front of the radiator! I initially thought I had accidently bought a counter-clockwise flex fan, but that wasn't the case. I ate the $83 I paid for this and cut the shroud in pieces with a die grinder to save all the work of draining and pulling the new radiator! If you're engine has any kind of cam, or is built, use the bigger fan as well! You need as much air going through the radiator as you can get! The other thing is that this is not a high quality shroud, like you'd see on a 69-70! This is a piece of injected plastic that you'd see a cheap kids toy truck made of!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit a six The shroud is represented as being able to fit a six cylinder with minor trimming. I found this not to be true. While the length was ok ,except for the fact if your car is an automatic the shroud is directly in the way of the transmission lines. The width of the shroud is approximately 2 1/2 inches to wide. I guess if you were in desperate need of a shroud, and didn't mind MAJOR MODIFICATION. You could make it work. I don't need one that bad and for that reason I am returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Bought this for my 65 mustang. Had to modify a little because of alternator but fits perfectly. Stopped the engine from running hot. Looks great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I'm very happy with this shroud. It was a snap to install and it has done a great job keeping my 289 cool.
Date published: 2015-01-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fan Shroud This is a install, fit, and modify piece. I took two 1" 16 gauge sheet metal strips and attached them to the radiator frame. I then fitted, drilled and installed the shroud. The only thing I had to do was drill and shape Three holes were the heads of the screw hit the mounting flange of the shroud. I did like the final results. I feel for the work you have to do to make it work it is a little over priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fan shroud that actually works This piece is well designed and can be customized for a really good fit. It provides better cooling with belt driven fans and funnels the moving air through the radiator much better than the factory piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what I was looking for. No instructions came with it. Could have been designed better fo ease of installation.

Product Questions

what are the dimensions of this shroud will an 18 inch flex fan fit in it and will it mount on aftermarket aluminum radiator

Asked by: demonhead69
No it will not fit an 18" fan. It will work with our aluminum radiators made specifically for 1965/1966, but it will probably not fit a generic fitment radiator.

Will the blue 17" flex a lite fan work ok with this shroud?

WILL THIS SHROUD ACCEPT A 17" FAN?

Asked by: VINNY28
The fan opening is 17 3/4 inches, though the fan would fit it would be to tight considering the engine will move some when accelerating.

how do you know which row bracket you need for a 1965 coupe 6 cylinders

Asked by: ramiro
It refers to how many rows of cooling tubes the radiator has. If you remove the radiator cap and look inside the radiator you will see either 2 rows of tubes or 3 rows, most likely you have two rows.
