    Does anyone know if a fan shroud for a 1965 Imperial 413 will fit a 1965 Newport 383 radiator? The seller indicates that it is a 22" which is correct. Thanks,

    Parts book lists a different pair of numbers for the Imperial 22" rad shroud as compared to C bodies (which are different again than B bodies and A bodies...)

    I have a spare 65 383 radiator shroud. Might be missing small parts, but those are easy to make. The 2 main pieces of the shroud are good. I was keeping it as a spare but now my car is done and I no longer need it.

    I gave Jim at DMT a sample of the rubber cushions for that shroud, (including a bottom part of the shroud), at a show a couple years ago. Haven't checked if he's producing them yet though.

    That would be great! I found some that worked from E body clutch pedals I believe, but they were not great.

    Quirey (the old Gary Goers) might be a better choice for rubber parts. He is making some 3 speed manual shifter bushings for me. Not sure Jim is really into rubber parts, but has been talking about if for years.

    I could probably come up with another sample if Quirey wants to give it a go, sounds like you are acquainted with him and I'm not.

    Send some photos of what you are looking for. Some parts are easier to make than others. Dave

    Will do, it's a little rubber bumper about an inch long, 3/8" wide and the same tall.

    Just have to find one that's still flexible enough to remove, two of them crumbled when I tried yesterday.

    Well I found 2 on my spare shroud. One crumbled when I took it off, but one came off in one piece, but it is cracked.

    Dave - can you work with this?
