I don't want to have to buy one of those electric fans that work good but are expensive. What car has a stock electric fan that does a great job at cooling? I want it for my 66 Nova. It's only a 6 cyl 194 cid. Thanks

the cooling fan in my old 92 Taurus would take care of all the leaves under the car. blew them all the way out. That was a pretty strong fan..

Measure what you think will fit, then head to the junk yard. Make sure your wiring and alternator can handle the load. Your alternator of probably only a 37amp.

Lincoln MKVII tops the list by a good bit, but it's HUGE to the point I couldn't use it in a C- body Mopar. The fan from a 3.8L Taurus has a rep as the second most powerful, and that's what I have on the 66 Polara with a 440 and AC in my sig. Works quote well, and I have a DCC Electronics temp/speed controller on it.

+1, and they can be run off a 55A alternator.

You may find that 2 small fans fit your application better. You only need as much fan as you need. Bigger (more powerful) is not always better. There is less wear and tear if a fan runs for a longer cycle than one that is more powerful and cycles on an off repeatedly.
