So the next big ticket item for the 67 is air-con.
I know, I know - I should just wind down the windows cause back in my day blah blah blah blah Vomit - but if I can effectively heat and cool the 'stang I have more chance of getting the wife into the car so I can fondle her whilst I drive. Neutral

So I've been looking at the Vintage Air Sure Fit Gen 4 kit. Found a seller in the states that can sell and ship for under $1800 (roughly). Anyone know of anywhere in Oz I could get one for around this price?

Think I'd be pushing the poop up the hill trying to find a similar quote, but I thought I'd throw it out there to the greater group.

The car was a factory air car, so I've got the controls and other bits and peices that are associated with air-con.

Also need to off load the original stuff to finance the purchase of said unit.

shamless plug. Ill post it up in a new, hilarious " come and look at my crap" post in the classifieds.

Yeah.. I'm starting to consider that option also...
Surely there's a write up on Mustang 360 about it..

I hear good things about Auto Frost in Milperra. Will have to pay them a visit myself to take a look at my system; just another thing on the list.

I've just decided to go with Classic Auto Air in my 67 but I don't have any pre-existing. Didn't want to fit Vintage Air's controls and vents as I want to keep the stock look. Couldn't find anyone locally that was interested to help. Other than restorers and they want a bomb to do it!

I'm not taking sides, but you were probably quoted a reasonable price. Its not a 5 minuit job, requires specialist equipment and most of the aftermarket kits do require some fiddling. Nothing is just bolt up despite the sales pitch. Laughing

Fair comment Nassi.

I sure wouldn't do it cheap either. I think its more that there aren't any "experienced" fitters and they can't predict the cost. Just adds to my list of do-it-yourself items. I suppose that's better. At least I'll know its done to my satisfaction.

Adding to the issue is you have a big block. They are a total bitch to do.

BTW, Old Air uses your standard controls & is easily adapted to the standard vents, so from an interior POV, looks stock. Engine bay you will find a Sanden type compressor & all the lines/hoses come out the hole where the fan motor is at present.

I am/was a dealer (started when I had the shop in CA) but reality, just order direct & have them ship it. Get the cable operated setup, not the electric.

Cables, hook up to stock controls. Simpler so less to go wrong.

Electric, maybe you should read this thread before asking about "electrics" ..... www.mustangtech.com.au...=5383.html Poke

If he went to a restorer he was probably quoted the hourly rate, which is often more than most.

The question to ask the restore is how many of that type of system have they installed. You may get a saving if they know the car and system and can install them quickly.
