The new Complete Kit adds modern air-conditioning to the first-generation American icon
SAN ANTONIO (May 26, 2022) – Vintage Air, the leading manufacturer of complete performance air-conditioning systems for classics, hot rods and street rods, has announced the release of its new under-dash air-conditioning system for the 1955-57 Ford Thunderbird. It is available as either a Complete Kit or an Evaporator Kit and is designed to install with minimal modifications to the original dash and firewall.
Vintage Air’s 1955-57 Thunderbird Complete Kit makes it simple to add modern comfort and convenience to this beloved classic that was never offered with factory air-conditioning. It makes modernizing the comfort levels of the classic cruiser a breeze with a simple bolt-on installation process.
The Complete Kit uses a Thunderbird-specific precision-engineered Y-block compressor bracket and a crimped refrigerant hose kit to ensure a direct fit. Also included is a bolt-on condenser kit with a binary safety switch. Inside the car, Vintage Air’s compact Heritage Series under-dash evaporator features an engine-turned aluminum face to blend in with the T-Bird’s artful trim and allows retention of the OEM heater and defroster. The injection molded Heritage evaporator measures just 16.25-inches in width, 5.25-inches tall and 12-inches deep.
The new 1955-57 Ford Thunderbird Kit is available as a Complete Kit or an Evaporator Kit for those installations that do not require under-hood components.
All Vintage Air systems are proudly manufactured in the USA, include all parts necessary for installation and are backed by a standard warranty.
