Air-Tique also have the compressor for $209 (new). If you have a big block, they also have a leftside (drivers) low mount [email protected] $89, I think. I just put both on my 69. If you need GM pulley numbers e-mail me or call 916.681.5687. You will probably have to replace all three pulleys. Patrick
Or you can have your R12 refrigerant replaced with Frigc. It is an EPA approved substitute available from Pennzoil. It is being used by the U.S. Air Force and others in large fleets. No parts replacement is necessary (except valve). I believe you can get it installed at most Jiffy Lubes.
Marv, I had the same thought and called Vinatage Air a few months ago to inquire about those cool little polished AC compressors. They strongly advised me to stay with the big A6 (I think that's what it's called) unit that most old GM cars came with, when using the stock AC system. There is a smaller compressor used on many later model GM vehicles, but I hear it is much less reliable than the A6. Can anyone confirm or refute this advice?
