Q & A

What's in the Box

The days of riding around trying to look cool while sweating your butt off are gone! So is going to the junkyard and trying to find used parts to cobble up an a/c system. These kits have three dash vents and two defrost ducts and are engineered for 1930's coupes, pick-ups and smaller cars.

These are designed with both the a/c evaporator and heater core in one unit which helps keep size and installation time down. They fit under the dash just like a new car and allow disassembly without removing the unit from the car.

They include dash louvers, defrost louvers, switch panel, a/c hose kit, dryer with switch, Sanden 508 compressor  with V-belt pulley, and evaporator/heater assembly. They are available with or without condenser and standard finish or deluxe polished aluminum compressor.

Hoses will need to be crimped by your local shop. R134a Freon required, but not supplied. Compressor brackets and heater hoses sold separately.

The cool people at Vintage Air technology have done it again! Defining their commitment to creating superior products, Vintage Air offers these SuperFlow condensers. These condensers have a unique micro tube design with improved refrigerant flow to provide much more capacity than any other comparable tube and fin condenser.

Vintage Air SuperFlow condensers are available in horizontal models, which are perfect for late model cars. They offer more grille area and most include universal mount bracket kits. Oh, and by the way, increased condenser capacity means that more heat is dissipated, pressure drops, and your compressor turns more easily. "So what," you say? Well, if your engine isn't working as hard, you gain a boost of horsepower! Cool, huh? Vintage Air--the people who know all about living cool.
