Still looking for a '68 OEM BB fan shroud.

Not happy with the aftermarket shrouds. I am still in search of an OEM shroud. Someone out there has got to have one for sale. Any leads would be appreciated.

I have to slightly modify the one I got from Ground Up but i blame that on a 454 being crammed under the hood of my 68. There isnít. Huh to these as they are kinda narrow. Whatís wrong with the ones youíve gotten?

1968 Chevelle Malibu 454, mild cam, 30 over, 12-bolt 3.73 rear
1972 Chevelle Malibu 350, radical cam, 30 over, 10-bolt 3.55 rear
2007 Mustang GT, 4.6L (281), Stock
There are no Ford vs. Chevy wars in my garage. It's all U.S. muscle.

The ones I have seen are warped and do not sit flat against the radiator on the two vertical side runs. I have the original OE one, but I modified it back in 1990 in order for it to work with the so called direct fit radiator from Be Cool. I didn't know better back then and cut into it. I now have a great DeWitts radiator that work well with the stock shroud. I just ordered one from Ground Up, I'll see how it goes.
