Re: After Market A/c Kits
Well I guess what is posted above is true about replacing parts, in either situation you will most likely be pulling the case out to fix the problem. The Vintage Air case is what's being said as "glued". You can send it back to vintage for repairs. Even if I do have to wait 2 weeks for a repair, I would expect the wait time to be the same since I would have to disassemble the classic unit, trouble shoot and then order the part. in my opinion just sending it to the professionals would be best. I would most likey just send back a classic unit to the factory for repair to make sure it's done right.
I also don't buy into the "built for repair" style of selling them. To me that's just telling me somethings going to break and they know it.
I ran a vintage air unit in my Chevelle for years with no problems and it worked excellent.
Now for my observations. I think the vintage air unit fits much nicer and the stock parts supplied with the kit for the firewall is not an afterthought like the classic unit stuff is.
At this time I have a vintage unit for my 67 and a buddy has a classic unit for his 68. The vintage unit looks allot better installed and the parts supplied to cover the firewall are much better. The vintage stuff was made for our cars. The classic firewall stuff is just plain junk.
With that said I have no idea how a classic unit performs. I have seen seen a complaint posted about one. I have also never seen a complaint posted about a vintage unit. I can only speak from my experience with one that my vintage unit worked very well. I see no reason why a classic one will not also. In the end it's what you want. If it possible to see the two kits side by side I would do that and make up your mind. Mine was a no brainier after seeing the classic kit and then ordering the vintage kit.
