Since I got a daily driver, I am going to be selling my A/C. The under-dash unit, compressor, and condensor APPEAR to be original. Where can I check the part numbers to be sure that they are?

If they are original, how much could I expect to get for the system? What about if they are not original? Thanks.

I could "kill" the fool who removed the in dash AC from my '68 FB..

IMHO the AC is worth more IN the car than OUT.

The only thing it's doing now is taking up weight. Might as well sell it so I can buy a stroker kit!!!

Whenever I need to know the value of a part these days, I check out e-Bay, and then knock off about 30%. I agree with Sam -- plus if I were you, and the parts are original, I'd hang onto them, even if they're just sitting on a shelf. I know it may sound strange, but my exhaust manifolds will probably stay with me forever, although they'll never see the inside of the engine bay again!

How true. As time goes by, and the value of original parts go up, those pieces will be handy to have. 65/66 evaporators, the part under the dash, can be bought for 100/150, hoses people generally buy new, COMPLETE brackets, pulleys, etc. under hood, along with evaporator is probably 450/500.

My daughter was offered $800 for her original a/c set-up out of her '66 coupe at a show a couple of years ago, so this should give you some idea. We have also gone back and forth about selling the set-up or keeping it because she wants to start drag racing the car and the money from the spare parts will help her out.
