Doni, is there any way you can get a model number for that AC unit? I have a compressor and condenser already so I just need the evaporator #. Classic Auto Air is real close to me so I was thinking about taking my van to them so they could see what they're up against.
Thanks, Sam

This was a kit,,,,,,,,condenser/fan was a unit mounted under the van,,,,,,,,,evap/heater unit replaced the stock heater in a 2nd gen Chevy van,,,,,,and I think this was the paperwork,,,,

Awesome, thanks! I guess I should relocate my condenser with a remote fan too. I have a spare fan.

,,,,we got enough troubles keeping our vans cool without having the condenser heat blowing into the radiator,,,,,,,,,,this kit has the package that mounts it in back of the battery,,,,,,,,,but any Fan/condenser can get the job done,,,,,,

Don , Vintage Air didn't make a kit for early vans . We used the Gen IV Magnum evaporator ( heat/cool }671400-VUZ . Gen IV control panel kit 492050 which mounted to the steering column bracket and we retained the original heater control knobs . The condenser/fan is mounted to the rear of the battery box . Don't have seats in the back so only concerned with keeping the front cool , and it does that very well . Can't post pictures and my gallery has now disappeared . Ron

Don , Really wanted factory A/C , but those units are really , really , really hard to find and your van won't fit in the garage and I'd already filled the vent holes in my roof and I'd rather look cool than be cool and ...... Ron

Hey Vanny,
I thought this was familiar, I guess I saw this before and posted on this thread about a year ago. If you want a closer look at those wheels....here http://vintage-vans.forumotion.com/t890p850-i-seen-a-van

Ok, those are torque thrust rims which I like, but these are the "Daisy" or "Coke Bottle" rims I was talking about:
