This Corvette is a roadster, but the owner also wanted the option to cool off with the help of air conditioning, so we chose a system from Vintage Air to make it happen. Corvettes were offered from Chevrolet with big block V8s and A/C, making a small engine bay even smaller. An advantage of the Vintage Air system is that it was designed to fit under the dash, freeing up valuable space under the hood.
The Vintage Air Gen IV system is mostly self-contained, with the A/C evaporator, the heater core, the blower fan, and the servo-controlled blend doors all in the same unit. This allows for an easier installation and smaller footprint under the dash.
The kit also comes with a condenser coil, brackets, lines, and a reciever-dryer to mount on the radiator.
