Aftermarket ac question

Post by Dutchbird » Sun Dec 30, 2018 7:45 am

Hi all,

In 56 thunderbird I've got an aftermarket AC
Are there more people who got one like this?
I am looking for parts but can't find what I need.
Especially the chrome frontbezel

That picture looks a lot like a faceplate for one of the aftermarket underdash AC systems. Maybe try "OldAir Products" or "Vintage Air"? Maybe a Google search with those names will get you close to the right product that you seek.

Here is a picture of the under dash unit you mentioned installed in a 1956.

Yes it looks like the one of oldair products
But they don't sell frontplates only.

I think it is the same as eboose7 got in his beautiful thunderbird. It was in my car when I bought it 25 years ago. But just restored my interior and like to put a new chrome front on it to finish it

I found a Select Aire system on Boston Craigslist under car parts. #350.00. The front plate looks pretty similar to yours.
