Good Day,
I want to put an air conditioning, heating and defroster unit in my 53 Chevy 210 sedan. It has a 327 with a Muncie M22. Anyone know if there is a unit that will work. Without cutting the dash. Any help will be appreciated.

I know you don't want to cut the dash but the 53/54 dash is perfect for A/C outlets. I used a Vintage Air unit.

greatnorthernwoods: what type gauges are you running? Is it an illusion or is the site glass on the gauges domed? Pretty unique as I have never seen that application before. Looks great!!!!

How difficult was it to install the vents?

Thanks. Yes, the gauges do have domed glass. They are made by Dolphin.

Wasn't hard at all. I didn't have the equipment to cut the holes so I had it done by a shop!
