My 66 had air and I'm not going to run it now...I plan on just getting a non ac box...what else do I need to do? I know I need to make a couple small panels to block off the holes in the fire wall...what about the
Anger hole to the left that is hidden by the passenger fender....anything else I need to do? Now I was I had no ac vent in my dash! Oh well!

I do not know your future plans for your 66, But I do know, Down the road you will wish the car had factory A/C. Also Factory A/C in a 66 is a real good thing.
It would be a very wise decision to keep EVERY nut and bolt from your factory A/C unit.:yes: Then again it is your car. Do what you want.
This info is from a very old Chevelle gearhead. I have a one owner LS-5/M-22 with Fac. A/C and a 468-70 driver with A/C.

As long as you aren't selling it anytime soon, what works for you is cool. But a 66 breeze car? I wouls sell a child to get it to work. In in Flariduh, it is requires three months out of the year if not more.

But OE stuff gets pricey. Sold a complete outside box with a questionable evap last year for $400 at a swap meet. I get $200 for the 69-72 stuff.

I believe the firewall opening on an AC car is larger than a non air heater box. I think there's a company out there who makes an oversize non-ac box that covers the bigger hole in the firewall. So that no fab is needed

Sorry I just grabbed those as examples. I think I paid around $150 for my fiberglass version on my '71, so $180 for yours (being a little more involved) sounds about right. The price paid for awesomeness can be steep at times. You will be glad you kept the heater on those cold nights!
