Ford Autolite changed from the 13 blade fan to the 10 blade fan on November 17, 1969 according to the Ford Master Parts Catalog. Depending on the Ford factory inventory turn your car could have come from the factory with a 13 or 10 blade fan for a little after the change over date.
1) This reproduction fan is the best available but I to give it an 8 rating for accuracy since its has the slightly different later seventies pattern.
2) Ford changed to the 10 fan to reduce noise.
3) Originals also had a small die stamped U inside a circle on one of the forward facing fan blades. This stamp is covered over with the large 3.87" BOSS 302/429 oversized pulley installed.
