Most S/C cars were equipped with twin fans ahead of the radiator. Very visible and obvious when viewing the car. Although the kit is equipped with a more effective puller type fan (technology has changed considerably since the 60's), I added the twin pushers for the visual impact.
The two motors are fan motors from 60's era Ford vehicles. A well placed search on eBay will often return these. I found three NOS motors, but they had the later vent slots in the end of them. No big deal - a little sheet metal cutting and some MIG work and the end caps are closed and sealed to the weather. Just like the originals.
The fans came from W.W. Grainger. I made spacer bushings to space the fan past the mounting structure. A 1/4" bolt holds the fan to the end of the spacer. Twin set screws keep the spacer on the shaft and a third screw serves as a lock to the fan mounting bolt.
The crossframe and mounting brackets were fabricated in the shop. All was painted frame black before mounting. The assembly is positioned in front of my radiator protection screen and bolted to the side tubes of the cowl frame.
Not completed but on the list is a switch control to turn them on or off. Right now, they are strictly visual
