    What have you used in a 1955 Ford F-100 for a under dash AC- heat unit --any pictures will help--
    Ones I see look to deep and hard to get hoses to firewall fittings-- Thanks

    I just installed a Classic Auto Air unit in a 54 F100. I usually use Vintage Air, but I have a dealer account and they restore my OEM stuff. If I can remember I will take some pics tomorrow.

    Vintage heat / air in my BLACK '48 Merc coupe, NO insulation (yet)In'Vegas on a 120 degree day you cannot run it on full cold very long, it works that good.

    The vintage air unit (in a previous post) looks really compact and would fit nicely in my 57 F-100. Problem might be mounting the compressor, since I am putting a 56 Lincoln 368 in it.
