I have a deluxe interior with a center
console, so I imagine that I can only
use an in dash system right? Where is a good
place to buy a kit and what is a fair price?
How do these compare in performance of
a new cars A/C system?

I can only recieve US Postal service, so
some places can't ship it to me. I'm
not worried about making the car look
original.

thanks

Rich

Both classic air in Tampa, Fl 813-251-2356- They do not list a site,and
Vintage AIr. www,vintageair.com I do not know about US Mail shipment on larger packages. In Japan you may have R-12 Freon but here we use 134 which leaves a marginal orig even a little warmer. The aftermarket in dash AC setup is supposed to be good. I like vintage-air becauee they offer a larger compressor. In pictures both units from each co. look similar. These units will work with your console-you'll have to remove it for easier installation. Good luck.

Mellow is right. The only place to purchase a system is Classic Auto Air. They have been making stock applications for years as well as improving modern designs.They also distribute there units to other vendors to sell so you may purchase their units from another vendor and not no it.They are located in Tampa about 25 miles from me and are known for quality installations.Recently Mustang Monthly or Mustangs and More had a whole article about them and how to install their systems.I don't have the article because I can't save everyone but I know it was in one of the last couple issues.
Good Luck and let me kow if you need any further info.

I went with Vintage Air on Becks 66 convt. She wanted a full console and didn't want the hang on under dash unit. I bought direct from Vintage, somewhere in Texas. Too big to go USPS. Good Sanden compressor. The swapping out of the original heater box is a little tricky and the routing of the vent hoses is tight. It uses the original heater lever control unit in the dash. Overall a nice unit.
