well, i decided to go with the vintage air for my 69. before i buy the setup i wanted to make sure all my dash parts were in working order. my old a/c controlls are very stiff to move. i dont know if the little arms that controlls the cables are broken or not, i havent taken it out yet to see. i went to a swapmeet and i picked up a heater controll for a 69 but after i got home and took a good look at it, it wasnt for an a.c car! so i was wondering if i could tear that one apart and fix my broken a/c controlls. or do i even need to use the stock controlls for the vintage air system? and another thing, did all of you guys reuse your old cables? or can you but new ones someplace? and if i cant use the parts from the controlls i just picked up, i guess ill just off it on e-bay. thanks guys

The Vintage Air unit can work with EITHER the OEM Heater switch WITHOUT AC or the one that has the AC switch. My car did not have factory air, so my heater switch NEVER had the AC controls on it. The Vintage air switch uses the far left switch lever to control fan speed (low, medium. fast). It uses the far right switch lever to control the temperature, The middle switch lever is not used at all. When you order the Vintage Air unit, they ask you if you car ever had factory air. They will send you the right kit to work with whatever switch you have. My suggestion would be to use the HEATER CONTROL switch instead of the HEATER/AC switch because they are much easier to find as you are no doubt aware.

Thumbs up

Justin,
The AC controls on my 69 were frozen also. I took the unit out of the dash and sprayed the lever chanels with white lithium grease. After working the grease in by moving the selectors, she was good to go again. Maybe you can try this to save you some time and money. I know I was about to throw my assembly away before I just cleaned it up. Hope this helps you out!

You have to use the old cables. They do not provide them.
