How many blades does a correct fan for a 68 289 have? I took a fan off a 68 with a 302 earlier this year and it is a 7 blade. I was sandblasting it last night and I fond a part number. Is this from a 78?

I have read 4-5-6, but not 7 that I remember. Mine has 4 with A\C and a 'heavy duty' Radiator. I thought for sure I had the wrong combo, but I found that to be one of the correct possibilties.
Most important to me - does it cool?

I don't remember offhand what mine has, but I know it's not as many as seven. I think it's five, but I'll check tonight.

I think most were 4. I have an NOS AC fan for the clutch that is a 6 blade. When we are working on daily drivers, we use the 76 Granada one. It's a Ford 7 blade flex fan that fits PERFECTLY inside the 65-67 shroud. It's a D6DZ# for the 6 cyl Granada. It's very effective in hot climates.
