Vintage air

has anyone here installed one of the vintage air a/c kits? I wanna put one in my truck, they have heat and a/c apparently you just have to gut your dash and all your old hvac stuff which i've already done. Just wondering if anyone else has messed with one of the kits im going to get the universal kit maybe after i learn some more about it. They make em for hot rods so they should have a bracket for the three fiddy still havent found prices im sure it over 1k for a kit but thats a guess.

Re: Vintage air

I have done a couple after market kits and worked on cars with a few. Might be better off getting the OEM parts. Adding OEM is very simple. I did this on my mom's first 84

Re: Vintage air

Well i considered that too but how hard will it be to re-install everything, i have nothing left after the firewall tubs there is literally nothing left of the entire system.

Re: Vintage air

yea you take a measurment of the biggest rectangle you can fit under your dash and they give you the right sized evap box plus it has the blower and everyhthing mounted to it, just gotta lose the glove box, and the condenser goes in front of the radiator. . . looks perfect just costs about 1175 bucks lol

Re: Vintage air

Even though it is behind a custom dash, check out Marty's Syborg Twin Turbo build thread. He has one in that truck. Just to give you an idea.

Ok I remember now seeing the hot rods with nothing under the hood but the suction and discharge lines going through the firewall.

Re: Vintage air

I had to remove all the factory heat and air from my firewall for engine and turbo clearance so I went with the Vintage Air system. All I did was remove all the factory stuff from behind the dash on the passenger side and mounted the unit there. Then I rounted the vent ports to the factory "collecter" that is in the center of the truck and I routed the defrost ducts up to the factory defrost outlets. Then I mounted the controls right where the factory one was.

I haven't hooked up the A/C lines yet, but the heater and defrost works awesome. The best prices that I found where from Curt's Hotrod Shop. I can find the link if you don't find it.

Re: Vintage air

Diesel, do you happen to have any pics of the new HVAC controls mounted in your dash?
