Hello, I tried searching several different ways to find an answer and I could not find it. I'm trying to find what would be the factory original Style fan blade that was used in the 327 300 horse thermostatic clutch motor. Also is the same setup used in this 1964 Factory c-65 air conditioning system. As a side note who makes the most accurate reproduction condenser for 64 Impalas Factory air conditioning systems. Thanks in advance for all who answer!

This is my 327-300 with AC. Fan blade has 5 blades. Fan clutch is the "thermal" type where theclutch engages more when hot. The non-thermal type just give a fixed amount of slip. With AC you want the Thermal type. Hayden and Four Seasons are good brands.
There is a heavy duty clutch fan available, but it really makes the fan roar LOUD as it slips less, so you don't want that one.

One thing to consider on the fan blade. Get as large a fan as is possible, allowing some wiggle room. Measure the inside of the shroud. I noticed there seems to be some variation with repro fans. As I recall, I got my fan from South Side Auto parts (formerly National Impala Parts aka Jody Anderson)
South Side Auto
I got an original used fan blade. It is larger than a repro fan I had previously by about an inch and fits fine.
This fan was used in a lot of cars over the 60's and there are even some variations that have a higher pitch on the blades for more air moving (and a bit more noise, no doubt).

South Side is a great source for original parts or the best of the repro parts, with great service (old fashioned on the phone with somebody who knows what they are talking about kind).
