Talking Vintage Air control panel?

I plan on getting a Vintage Air system this coming spring. Can I use the original heating/cooling control panel on my Chevelle?

The Surefit kit for '68-'69 includes instructions for making the factory non a/c panel work. I have ones and it worked great.

As you see from my other post, I'm looking to go the aftermarket route... According to Classic Air I use my origional controls with their system.... Stoll waiting for the literature to hit my mailbox...

I have looked into this too, the cable system should be adaptable to the stock lever system. IIRC they have direct plug in systems for the most popluar models 70-72?? I will have to do more custom stuff with my 74!! Plus I have factory AC which the Giant evaporator box is never getting bolted back to my firewall
