This Griffin Aluminum radiator is designed for a 1928-1929 Ford with a Chevy engine that fits into a grill shell. I am sorry we do not offer a fan shroud for this application, however you may be able to adapt a Walker fan shroud to the radiator such as p/n 820-50, this fan shroud measures 22" x 17".
