What is a Hotz Cooling Fan ?

I think that generally like a lot of stuff on ebay it is advertised to fit a whole lot of different cars.  I think this is not something that you would want unless you had a very specific application for it.  looks like a fairly substantial piece but unless you know exactly what it fit , what would it do for you.  When searching for parts for my 1915 Olds, I  get antennas and wheel covers that "will fit".

Going on absolutely nothing but what you show, my guess is that it is a cast aluminum accessory for a Model T Ford. There were millions of accessories made for what was the most popular car in the world at that time. And they used a fan that looked like that. Fords had a thermosyphon cooling system with no water pump. They would overheat if left idling for long on hot days, and if you didn't go fast enough to send a little breeze thru the rad. I wouldn't be surprised if someone made a more powerful fan to cure overheating.
