I know that nobody makes a direct fit kit for Chevy/GMC G vans, but I'm wondering if any of you have had any experience using an aftermarket AC kit. I have a 1978 G25 with dealer installed AC, but it's shot and I would like to replace the whole set up if possible. Any advice? Thanks

I've helped a neighbor install a couple of Vintage Air type setups in hotrods ('39 Chevy coupe, a Studebaker, etc.). If you understand the basic principles of how the systems work, and are good with your hands, you could make one work. It would be nice if you can add a rear a/c unit too...a van is a BIG space to air condition.

I don't remember the guys name, but he was at the Nats with a White Shorty this year. He had a full system from Vintage Air on his Chevy that came without AC originally. I would get a hold of Vintage air and tell them what you are doing. I've heard very good things.

Check this out: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Underdash-Air-Conditioning-AC-Evaporator-Kit-Hoses-Fittings-Compressor/202309007338?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

Get the compressor brackets and pulleys, etc... from a junked vehicle with your same engine. Mount the underdash unit on the ceiling behind the driver and passenger. Chills from above!
