My local yard charges $27.50 per fan so $55.00 for a dual setup. Wiring harness is another $11.00.

Nice! I asked about the year because my 73 has a water pump the extends closer to the radiator and the fit is such that I had to trim some plastic from the fan.

Yeah, I've been a little concerned about the fit, but I'll just have to wait and see how it all comes together.

funny, I was thinking the same thing, I seem to always buy high, sell low? what's up with that.... my dual fans, although they were like new, was $100.. I sold it though, and I'm running a large single, and it very seldom comes on because my radiator is a triple core Aluminum unit that the previous owners put in.. its huge.. I just found a single smaller fan out in the garage, up under my tool box, brand new in the box that I originally bought for my '62 vette.. never even opened the box, vette was stolen back in '82.. but I have the fan anyway.. oh well, what a trade off..

I got my column from a '79 1 ton Chevy Camper Special. It was the only truck I found with tilt column and not an automatic. Fit is perfect. I think anything in the 70s and 80s will fit. All the guts are the same (GM of course). The variations are in the design of the housing, especially where it meets the firewall. Later models will have the wipers/dimmer in the column, but the internals are still the same. You can transfer everything from that column to yours.

Ahm...it wasn't a Red w/hardtop, was it? I bought a '62 that turned out to be stolen.

As for the steering column donors, would a YJ work? Found one at a local Jeep JY that has one for $250, which seems kinda high to me, but it did get me wondering about them as a donor. Seems many are using them for their tubs, so there has got to be many steering columns out there available now...
