Vintage Air did a presentation at Ididit in MI. The real difference between R-12 and 134a systems is the condenser. R134a isn't as efficient as R-12 and requires more tubes and fins in the condenser. Give them a call and explain what you are looking to do and they should be able to point you in the right direction.


1963 Chevrolet ?

Hey Andy. As Junky says. All vintage air stuff is 134a I have gone with a 24 x 14 x .83 condenser. The one they use for the sure fit system is 22 x 14 x .83. That size isn’t readily available here in oz. I ended up going with the slightly larger one. I don’t want to let too many secrets out but I think this system is going to look pretty trick. I’m adapting some 61 Pontiac ac controls and vents etc so that it all looks period for our rhd cars. I’ll post some progress pics over the next couple of weeks.
