I did my air,just last month.I changed the POA to what is called a update kit.The kit is a aluminum tube that has a schrader valve and a low pressure switch.It will make your ac system have a cycling clutch.This will save on gas.It doesn't look stock,but none of the new POA valves look like the origional.I just got back from a 350 mile trip and the ac worked perfectly.We have allready had a 100 deg. day,and it was nice and chilly.I've worked on some customers cars with the POA valve,and found them to be a pain to get them as cold as mine. If I could have found a POA that looked origional,and reasonably priced(under 100$),I would have kept the POA,just for the look.But now,I really feel I made a good decision,on the update kit. I know Big A had the POA,I believe the application was for a Ford,no one had a new one for a 68 Camaro.I believe they had one for a Firebird though.I believe the update kit came from Vintage Air,cost about 80$. Good luck.
