These are the interior components of Vintage Air's air-conditioning system for midyear Corvettes. New side console ducts are provided, along with new defroster ducts, while the underdash ducts look and operate like factory originals. All components are clearly labeled, and the instructions are clear and well illustrated. The only items not supplied with the kit are replacement heater hoses, the compressor belt, and the R134a refrigerant.

This month, we continue the installation of the Vintage Air aftermarket air conditioning kit in our '67 Sting Ray coupe. Last month, we removed the glovebox, the heater cover, and the stock heater core. We also removed the hood so we could install the condenser and drier-that's where we pick up the project in this installment.

Don't miss Part 3 next month as we finish our installation and charge the system with refrigerant!
