There is almost no excuse these days for not installing a Vintage Air A/C kit in your classic car or truck. If you’re one of the few who enjoys “roughing it like the good old days” then, sure, modern A/C isn’t for you. As for everyone else, having ice-cold air blowing on your noggin during the peak of summer is a must.
Luckily, installing modern air conditioning in your classic is getting easier by the year. Thanks to companies like Vintage Air Inc., you can usually get a complete A/C kit made to fit your specific vehicle. That is especially true if you’re driving a more popular platform like a Nova, Chevelle, Mustang, C10, etc.
Even when a direct-fit kit isn’t available for your application, there are a host of universal A/C systems out there. But, that’s a story for another day.
In our case, we are installing a Gen IV SureFit Vintage Air A/C kit on our 1967 Nova. Luckily, we planned ahead and made sure we had an A/C compressor on the front of our LS3 when it was installed. All we had to do was order up a 1966 to 1967 Chevrolet Nova SureFit Complete Kit. Using some basic mechanical know-how and equipped with the complete instruction manual from Vintage Air, we got to work.
