Our brother-in-law used a Southern Air (Former Vintage Air Employee?) kit for his '70 Camaro, and he loves it.

I have installed a Vintage Air system on my '67 Chevelle, and I can say that it was one BIG pain in my rear. I'm sure that if I knew what I was doing, it wouldn't be as bad as it turned out to be. As far as the hose routing, I'm assuming that the kit's for an A/C car vs. a Non A/C car are very similar, if not the same. The system I have basically replaced everything from the stock heating system except the control arms. The heater box is replaced with a plastic cover, and all of the hoses are routed through this to the ENTIRE unit, which is mounted under the dash, you'll have to add a couple of switches to the control panel, and re-route some new control cables, you'll even lose one, i believe. Keep in mind, this is with a Non A/C car, so yours could be different. I don't have mine charged yet, so I can't say how well it works, but it is completely installed. Reply to my e-mail, and I'll try to get you a couple of pictures, it may take a day or two though.

In the Technical Reference section of this site there is an article covering my installation of a Vintage Air system in my 64. (if you have any specific questions, feel free to e-mail me direct)

Although I wouldn't call the installation a "breeze", I think it's about as straight forward as possible for the amount of work that has to be done.

The issue of what is required for an original AC car or non-AC car should be taken up directly with Vintage Air. As an example, if the kit is for a non-AC car, the hook up at the control levers would be different. There may also be differences at the firewall that would complicate the installation. Get it clear between yourself and Vintage Air BEFORE ordering the kit.
