Found the center AC vents. . .$14.95!

Hey guys I found the center vents for the the center AC housing on a 69. I figured if they were made to go in the center vent someone would sell just them. Eklers has them in their 78-82 Corvette catalog for $14.95 each. Better than $80 when the housing is fine.

Certainly looks close, but there are minor differences. If you don't mind, this is a good deal!

I used a small screw driver to remove the old vents and snapped in the new. The only difference is the chrome is only on the lip, no big deal. Looks better than the old louvers that were crooked.

Re: Found the center AC vents. . .$14.95!

Bruce, Thats good news! If you get a chance can you post a pic of the vent assembled with the chrome tipped inserts?

I am hemmin/hawwing about which vent to use. I saw the Corvette vents with the body that is all chrome for $19.95. If the vents in my 69 are correct then the inside of this Corvette vent will have to be blackened to match the original. Still, no big deal. I'm glad to be able to repair my old center vent assembly.

Thanks for the info .....Jb

Beat it to Fit, Paint it to Match!
