Aftermarket Air Conditioning

What is the best add on AC system to get the most bang for the buck for my 67 Camaro Convertable. Summer in Tucson, Az makes the car almost unusable for the long hot days. Convertable is nice but AC would sure help.

re: Aftermarket Air Conditioning

Classic Air is another choice. Did one on a 67 and my buddy is just finishing one on his 69.

He has run in to several issues on the 69 and I wasn't impressed with the 67. It came with the car when I bought it.

I just put EFI on a 70 Chevelle with Classic Air. It wasn't working.

re: Aftermarket Air Conditioning

I was in Scottsdale for a short time. Although it is nice to have a/c I looked at summer in Az like winter in New York and let the car rest until the weather was more reasonable. Be it snow in N.Y. or 110 in Az either way the car was not happy. The only time in Az I enjoyed during the summer in Az was cruising with the top down in the evening when the sun was down.
The others answered your question already I was just throwing this out there.

re: Aftermarket Air Conditioning

I did Vintage Air a couple of years ago and it's been great.

Re: Aftermarket Air Conditioning

Thanks to all for your suggestions and advice.
I've got a ways to go before I make a decision on what system to use.
Thanks,
Jerry

Re: Aftermarket Air Conditioning

Hi Jerry

I installed the Classic Auto Air System in my 1969 Camaro BB.

I also did a Modification to the Heater Core as I wanted to Use the Big Block Heater Box and needed to Relocate the Heater Core nipples.

This is my Post, it has some Info that might be helpful ??

https://www.camaros.net/forums/28-hea...-core-mod.html

And one thing to know is that some of the Aftermarket Systems, as is my Classic Auto Air Conditioning system Do Not take in Outside Air.

The Air is Recirculated.

I still have the Floor Vents thru the Kick Panels.
