    Not only will it work; it will freeze the Mrs out.
    I think that having the factory A/C will be a benefit to the sale, particularly if it works. Did you do the ones in Duane Hyatts cars?

    Thanks Eric.

    Yes; we did Duane's A/C and the rest of his mechanicals.

    Agree - put it back on, fix it, whatever. I am considering getting a/c installed on my 71 so the Mrs will actually ride with me - then again...

    I'll just leave this here. Non-invasive, no body mods, half the weight and uses less than 1 HP.

    Definitely.
