MAC's offers three kinds of fan belts: plain rubber, plain rubber with “Ford� script & plain leather.

Rubber Fan Belts: Close to the original, with heavy-duty 5-ply
reddish-tan rubber material. All are 1-1/8" wide with a glued, overlapping lamination joint.

Leather Fan Belts: Not original, but they are very durable. They might stretch, so are made slightly undersize. They are stitched at the joint & around the circumference.
