Ok cool, this I have to give more thought to it, only way is cutting a hole in the hood and maybe adding scoop on top. I will look in to it, I only have about 1/2" room on top of the air cleaner with hood close.
I had to cut a hole in the hood of my 84 mazda with mopar motor in it.

I was thinking at the back of the hood, I have about 40 3/8" hole drilled all ready in the scoop in front of the glass for the carb to pull in air from there.

I would think with a good drop base air cleaner would fit pretty well with that hood.

Guy's thanks for you help. I went with a Lincoln Mark 8 fan.
This fan on low cools the motor down to 175 with the hood closed.

Up date on the car, new chambered sticks exhaust ran over the rear.

That's 8 gauge copper wire in there. Just to hold it in place to make you sure the fan will cool the motor. Man this fan is very strong had to up grade my alternator to 130 amp.

Here is a pic of the fan temp relay control I'm using. Going to run
a switch in side the car for the high speed side of the fan with another relay that will kick off the low speed relay when I need to turn on the high speed side of the fan if I ever needed.

Work find fan kicks in at 185 go's off at 175

yeah, thats certainly the wrong setup for a fan. everybody knows that 8 gauge copper wire is used for an East Texas trunk latch, not a fan Rolling Eyes Laughing

The copper single 8 gauge is only holding the fan in place until I make the brackets for the fan.

The wire set up for the fan is right.... Laughing

This is the set up now the wiring relays and adjustable fan stat.
I'm using both the low speed and high speed settings in the fan.
the high speed cuts on by via switch in the car that when turns on buy the switch it kicks off the low speed relay why the high speed is running. But it looks like may never need the high speed fan on.

Low speed cools the motor down to 175 and cuts the fan off when that temperature is reach.

If I by pass the adjustable stat motor will cool down to 160 man these fans are the way to go.

pics of the hole set up before I install in the car. But now install works very good.
