    Newebie looking for a little direction. I was hoping to find some information on adding AC to a 72 that does not have AC. I found Vintage Air's website, but are there any others I should look at? Purchase decision is riding on this...cause its dang hot here in NC in the summer time, even with the top off.
    Thanks,

    I saw a guy down at Sears (Houston) a few months ago with a 70 pickup, he had installed Old Air - abouit 1200 bucks installed. These guys have been around a while. The guy said the AC froze his nueces even in Texas summer...

    Howdy from Durham! Do you have a 72 or are you thinking of getting one? Drop me a mail offline maybe we can meet up and beat our trucks up somewhere.

    I've seen a couple of Chevy trucks with the Vintage Air kit installed. That's the way I plan to go. The kits are very complete, they look like a stock installation, and the guys I talked to said that the instructions were good.

    I'm going to retrofit a factory system using mostly junkyard parts. Is that not an option for you?

    I have most of the AC stuff laying under my truck in the Driveway. I wouldn't mind selling the stuff I have but don't have the time to take out any of the hard stuff (ie dash controls, conderser). I have everything but the compressor. The cables for the controls are shot but they are cheep.
