Suggestions for a 6V cooling fan

I'm sure a few of you have already been down this road - I have a 48 Super Six that normally runs quite well. I would like to add an electric fan in front of my rad to assist with cooling on hot days in stop n go traffic. Can anyone recommend a product or model number that will fit in front of my radiator without much modification? I can fab up pretty much anything needed to mount or wire it, but I don't want to cut anything original. I am running an original 6 Volt +ground system. Thanks for your suggestions!

    There is usually an ad in Hemmings for 6 volt electric radiator fans.

    Get curved not straight blades; highest amps you can afford. Use relay. Use adjustable capillary bulb control. Anchor to structure not with nylon ties thru radiator.
    But sure it is for blow not pull. Make sure it is not turning opposite to mechanical fan direction.
    SPAL is best but not sure they make 6 volt. I had to cut some grill metal to get fan in position on '53.
