Re: 1963 Sport Fury A/C Vent Questions



Travis,

I am working on installing a Vintage Air Gen-II unit.  I am not far enough along to post details here yet but as of now I think I can get it done.  I don't know if your firewall is the same as mine but it is a real problem mounting a unit level and plumb.

If you want more details contact me directly.

Take Care
Dennis

Hi Dennis, let me jump in here on the A/C approach you are taking. I've held off on the A/C install on my 65 B for the same concerns. I installed the Bouchilon compressor mount which was great and makes belt tensioning easy. I like the low mount, out of the way. The down side is it essentially eliminates the possibility of power steering in the future . Beyond that I recommend it. 

Now, I've spent years looking at evaporator kits and every one I've found is passenger piping only. Vintage Air, Old Car & Classic Air were all right side. Still trying to sort out the lines and piping but leaning toward the Vintage Gen IV. I really like the idea of not messing with cables and the control panel will fit where the push buttons were on the factory controls.

When I get the courage to tackle it I'll send photos and let you know how it went. Please do the same if you get there first.

Thanks,


Great picture that shows exactly what I was looking for, the location of the under dash vents.


I am still looking at systems.  Vintage Air is probably the best know but the heater and A/C lines exit the unit in the right side.  It means that the lines must go through the firewall below the cowl area which is very low.  I will be looking at other systems to see if any of them are easier to pipe.  Here is the compressor and compressor mount I want to use but it will really complicate the piping.

Hi Dennis

I own a '63 Sport Fury that has factory air. I will try to attach an interior picture to confirm your vents are correct. Driver side attaches to dash, pass side to kick panel. Please let me know what air unit you choose. I'm trying to decide whether to rebuild or replace mine.

Regards
Lyle

I am in the process of trying to add A/C to my 63 SF.

Please refer to the pictures, have I found the right vents for the left and right sides below the dash? 

I know my upper dash vent is wrong, I have not found one with the tip-out vents for A/C but I think this will work, again any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

My plans are for a Vintage Air unit for the A/C, heat and defroster.

Thanks
Dennis
