Yes Mike, the New Yorker fabric was named Congo, even though the pattern looks like snow flakes

Thanks for the info Sven! It's great to be able to translate the card info.

Mike, maybe John has a dash, but swapping it out would be a pain since I am not planning to restore the whole thing very soon. So the plan is to just pull the windshield and drill the holes so I can install the A/C stuff and replace the dash pad. I'm trying to limit how many cars I have torn apart at the same time.

No problems Nathan, happy to be able to help you out.

Just for your information, if you are going ahead and install the oem A/C, there's a lot more work than just the snorkels - you need also to modify the cowl and for to get access, the engine needs to be removed.

Arland here on the forum has gone through the oem A/C installation and all is documented in his thread - let's hope he sees this and kick in with some info.

To remove the dashboard isn't a difficult task, just a lot of work. If you have a good front window and rubber seal, it's best to remove the dashboard.

By the way, you have a 61' standard front window in your car - the 60' should have a compound front window for all models. In 61', the compound window was only used in convertibles.

I am thinking of installing an aftermarket A/C system, depending on if I have anywhere to put the evaporator.....and the A/C vents are just really neat even if I don't have A/C.
