Thank you for the very helpful reply. I am familiar with the vintage air system. Have you installed one before?A Vintage Air a/c kit would be probably the easiest solution if you would like a/c.
I dare say it would be an easier install as well verses an original a/c system from a doner, and much nicer than just a heater.
Not cheaper, but certainly better.
Not sure if I understand about being an Eskimo in San Diego.. I thought it was warm all year 'round. I've been to LA in Winter (Jan 89) and it was lovely and warm..Thank you for the very helpful reply. I am familiar with the vintage air system. Have you installed one before?
Thanks Larry. I've heard a lot of good things about the VA system and if it works in the desert, it'll work great in San Diego. Do you really need to remove the fender or wheel well to install it?I installed a vintage Air system in my 68 and it is very well designed and fit great IMO. If you have no heater at all it is actually easier as you don't have to hassle with removing the old heater. Mine works great here in the desert.
Thanks Iron Man- I checked out the CA site and it looks like a nice setup too. I'll have to wait until I can dedicate so much time to it. You make me think I should combine it with my future dash/stereo redo.I installed Classic Auto Air in my '68 Camaro over two years ago. Very similar to the Vintage Air unit. Did not have to remove the fender or inner fender well. Takes 25-40 hours to install depending on skill level. It is easier to do with your seats and in dash stereo removed. My kit allowed me to use the original a/c & heater dash controls. When done the system must be evacuated and charged up with 134. Good luck!
