In Florida with 1977 Chevy Van g20. Never had the factory AC installed. Apparently there's no kit made for this model / year. Checked VintageAir, etc. Salvage yards seem pretty thin as well. I wasn't too keen on a rooftop unit but it's getting really hot.

New to the vanning scene, so otherwise having a blast! Any advice about where the best places to look is appreciated.

A lot of truck stuff crosses to vans. I have a hard time believing that nothing will work. All the under hood stuff should be standard for most of the decade.


Tucson-it's a dry heat...like an oven

....thought so too. Been to two shops specializing in classics. I'll keep looking. I found Carid.com. They might have everything ala cart. I'm going to see if I can find a diagram of how the system is supposed to look. At least to know where it all gets installed.

Thanks

I helped my neighbor install a couple of those Vintage or Classic a/c kits in streetrods. Not too hard to do.

Just home from a week in Florida. You NEED a/c.
