Nope, I distinctly remember a shroud between engine and radiator that the fan stuck half way into.
'65-'66 Full Size Chevy cars?
I do also remember trying to find one in a salvage yard was next to impossible.
Most likely because most '65 and '66's did not have one.
The spacers you are talking about were for the Iron duke engines, at least that is where I saw one on a 63 Impala.
Maybe so, but '65 and '66 V-8's had the Spacers that I was talking about and there were 2 sizes, a 4 Inch and a 1 3/4 Inch. Basically speaking, the Big Block got the Narrow and the Small Block got the Wide.
Here is a line from one of the experts on Chevytalk:
--"The big block spacer (thin) is for the wider radiator (4 core). If you have a small block with A/C, you also have the thin spacer and the larger radiator.
The small block radiator takes the 4" spacer, and only without air conditioning. It also has no fan shroud, just a finger guard on the radiator."--
Notice he states No
Here it is here 2nd post down:
To add a little extra, I have had 13 '65 and '66 Cars here and I still have 11 of them. None of the '6's and Small Block have "Shrouds".
Not counting the 100 others of the hoods I've been under.
