DESCRIPTION

  • The Best Cooling Available For Your Classic 1956 Chevy 
  • Sure-Fit In Dash Installation With Electronic Servos
  • Use Your Original Heater Controls By Using The Included Control Panel Conversion Kit
  • Allows For "Blended" Heat & Air Conditioning Like A Modern Chevrolet
  • Includes Special Plastic Glove Box Liner To Clear Vintage Air Box

Note:  When ordering for a car with a Cross Flow radiator, the condensor provided is 14"x25-1/2" and  requires the radiator  be mounted  in front of the radiator support

This Chevy Gen IV Vintage Air conditioning unit is sure to keep you cool even on the hottest summer days. It includes all components needed to complete the installation except for belts and engine pulleys. Just install, charge and go! This is not a "hang-on" kit; it fits up under the dash, taking place of the original heater system. This Gen IV unit features fool-proof electronic servo controls that operate using the original deluxe heater control panel. These servos control an advanced ECM module for maximum efficiency. The air conditioning ducts are placed on the left, right and center of the dash for efficient cool air distribution. The under hood components are an easy bolt-on for either small block or big block Chevy engines. Some drilling/cutting is required on the passenger side radiator filler panel for the lines to the condensor. All of our Vintage Air systems use HFC-134A refrigerant. When ordering, specify small block or big block engine, short or long water pump, alternator on the driver side or passenger side, radiator in the V8 or 6-cylinder position and v-belt or serpentine belt drive. For serpentine systems only, the compressor bracket is not included. Keep you cool in the summertime with a Chevy Gen IV Vintage Air conditioning system!

 

 

The Short And Long Of Chevy Water Pumps

Chevy mechanical short style water pumps measure 5-5/8” high from the shaft down with the pilot shaft diameter measuring 5/8". Long style Chevy water pumps measure 7” high from the shaft down, and the pilot shaft diameter was 5/8" as well. Do not mix and match pulleys from short and long water pump engines because this will cause pulley misalignment. An easy way to find out what style you have while your pump is still installed on the engine is to try to stick your hand between the water pump and timing chain cover. If you can slip your fingers in-between you have a long, if not you have a short.
