Although a little primitive as far as luxuries go, our stripped-down 1970 pro-touring Super Bee has always been a joy to drive. However, on the Hot Rod Power Tour or on the road to an Ultimate Street Car event, we found ourselves burning up during the summer or fogging up the windshield on humid days.
So what’s the solution? The Vintage Air Gen IV system (PT 971065) is an upgrade that promises to keep this ride comfortable regardless of the weather. Vintage Air system provides a small under dash design that will take just a weekend to install.
The evaporator box has a fully electronic control system [read: fly-by-wire] doing away with the need for outdated cables or vacuum connections. This not only modernizes the system but also improves its reliability, guaranteeing consistent climate control.
A new control head provides variable blower speed and the option to choose between dash, floor, or defrost air distribution. The head looks similar to the factory unit and bolts in the same location as factory making the installation process straightforward.
These kits include not only the evaporator unit but also all essential components, such as the sensors, wiring, ducting, vents, condenser with brackets, preformed refrigerant lines, drier, fittings, hardware, block off plates, and installation instructions.
The kit is designed to fit under the dash into many Mopar models with or with out factory air. While you can get the kit with a compressor, we still have the factory compressor for the G3 Hemi 392 we’re running, so we ordered ours without one.
Whether you own a 1968-1970 Dodge Coronet or Charger, or a Plymouth Road Runner or Satellite and GTX, Vintage Air’s B-body kit has you covered.
The Vintage Air climate control is a game-changer for classic car enthusiasts who are looking to upgrade their cars without hacking up their dashboard. Stay tuned shortly for a full-length detailed tutorial on how we installed this Vintage Air kit on our ’70 Super Bee here at Mopar Connection Magazine.
