Part Number:     RF504

Description

The RF504 fan shroud by Rhino Fabrication was patterned after the original sheet metal shroud that was introduced for the FE Galaxies in 1965. This is an exceptional shroud in that we here at Rhino had a bit of fun with the recreation. We have included the original stamping lines and stress marks created when striking the metal shrouds back in the day.  Our tooling reflects these same stamping patterns to make the reproduction RF504 look as accurate as possible in an ABS product. Not only is this cooling shroud very sturdy and functional but the .187” ABS material used in the recreation  looks absolutely beautiful in its matte black finish.  This shroud will compliment your Galaxie FE engine bay and needs to be installed behind the 24” radiator.

Attention:  These products are very expensive to transport to you. Because we have made every effort to provide you with correct and accurate information concerning fan shroud size, year, and model fitment we will not be responsible for the freight and costs associated with a return of your choosing.  We have excellent photos and descriptions to allow you to purchase the correct shroud for your specific vehicle. We will asses a 20% restocking fee on any returned fan shroud. In short you need to take the time and initiative to be sure you are purchasing the correct shroud. If in doubt call us first.

Compatibility

This fan shroud fits the following FE vehicles with 24” radiators:

  • 1965 Galaxie with 352, 390, 427, 428 FE engines
  • 1966 Galaxie with 352, 390, 427, 428 FE engines
  • 1967 Galaxie with 352, 390, 427, 428 FE engines (early production models only)

This fan shroud only fits the early 1967 Galaxie models.  The filler neck on the early 1967 Galaxie vehicles was located off set near the passenger side of the radiator.  The later 1967 Galaxie models used a radiator with the filler neck that was centered on the radiator and these cars used a different fan shroud than the shroud listed here for sale.

Advantages

  • Rhino Fabrication fan shrouds are manufactured from material that is smooth inside and outside. The outside of our shrouds have a Matte Black finish and compliment a highly detailed engine bay. The perimeter edges of the cooling shrouds are free of burrs and the trim is precise and professional.
  • This shroud contains very fine details usually not seen in reproduction ABS shrouds. We have replicated the factory stress and stamping lines created on the original sheet metal fan shrouds making this shroud very cool indeed.

Tips

  • If you are sporting an aftermarket radiator the rearward mounting flanges of your radiator may not be exactly as the stock radiator was when it was installed by Ford or Mercury. To correct this mounting issue some of our customers find it necessary to use a vertical flat bar of aluminum to create an offset bracket to mount our shrouds to the aftermarket radiators. Remember, aftermarket radiators are produced to fit multiple models of vehicles.  Our Rhino Fabrication fan shrouds are patterned after the factory shrouds.
  • For best cooling results your fan blades should sit approximately 2/3rds of the distance into the cavity of the fan shroud.

Factors that will affect fitment:

  • Radiator width
  • Fan blade diameter
  • Engine cubic inch
  • Aftermarket pulleys and accessories
