I have an opportunity to buy a 69 F100 AC unit. Will the AC Unit mate with the dash of my 67? I know that a lot of parts are different from a 67 compared to the 68-72. Will the 69 unit mount correctly to my 67? Here are pics

This is dealer installed Economy A/C that is not combined with the heater. Its original applications were 1968/72 F100/350.

Whether it will work on 1967's, I dunno, but I do know that the 'hang-on' A/C used in 1967 F100/350's is the same as 1965/66 F100/250.

This A/C's chrome bezel is the same as 1963/66 Falcon/Fairlane and 1965/66 Mustang.

Thanks for your reply. I understand that I will need to purchase a condenser, hoses and compressor and find a bracket for the compressor. however, will I need anything else in the interior side of the firewall for instances, switches (on off) or is the **** on the AC unit control everything? Also, what is a fair price for a working ac unit?

I was given a unit that was suppose to have come out of a 1966 pickup.
Well it kind of mounted in my 71 but had issues with think it was the wiper motor or something like that. I modified the motor some and got it to work some what but kept getting iced up after about 1/2 hr use in 110 temps. Not sure what the problem was.

I know air in the system will cause icing up but did not get a great amount of air from the blower motor having relocate so ended up remove the unit after moving to a cooler place to work.

I came across another dash unit that was in a 71 with a 4 speed so installed that into my 71 4wd truck much better for the blower motor. I went with the 5 cyl. Sanden 507 less motor drag from the compressor then the big old York one ford used. And running R12 and it's damn cold.

Well, I pulled the trigger on the ac unit. Probably paid too much at $205. Although, I was researching the item and contacted Vintage Air and the tech guy told me that they are not easy to find and leg room is not compromised for the driver which is a plus. What parts should I get to finish off the project? Keep in mind I don't want to spend a lot of money. Will any compressor bracket from any straight 6 work? Does anyone make an aftermarket bracket? Any leads on a compressor bracket for my 300 Straight 6? The tech guy said that they don't carry them.

Old Air sells stuff for the 6 try them..
Most Sanden type brackets bolt to the York brackets for the v8.

But have seen many I6 at the PnP yards with AC Sanden brackets

I cleaned the underdash unit a bit, sprayed some paint and saw that the original applique (temp/air) was under the cheap wood cover. There was a lot of glue that covered the original applique and I worked on it a bit to reveal that it was still in decent shape--sprayed some clear over it after sanding it from 220 all the way up to 1000 grit.

I will work on the vents next.

Pretty decent transformation with an hour's worth of work.

Cleaned up pretty good. Before installing it I would test it with some air pressure and look for any leakage.
I put in about 90-100 psi, and yes set it in the bath tub looking for any bubbles.

I plugged off one end and made up a little test fitting from tubeless tire valve core stem to add air to it.
As you would sure kick yourself in the azz if it had a leak with out the elect fan and switches that is.

Old Air apparently has the bracket for $140--a bit pricey. Flashback won't just sell the bracket. The guy indicated that I should set it up on the rt side of the engine given that the Alternator is on the right side and I may run into problems if I add power steering -- don't believe I will. The Old Air bracket appears to mount on the left side of the engine.

Well, in that case call Hidden Valley Auto Parts here in AZ. 602-252-2122. Last month they helped out a fellow FTE'r that wanted P/S brackets etc on a 300 I6. Maybe he's got another set of all the brackets,pulleys,pumps,compressor,nuts,bolts,etc. You may be able to get everything off one engine together. AKA a matching set.

Thanks. No luck. I think I am going to go with the aftermarket bracket for 140 and buy the other stuff separately. I still think I can get everything I need for about 500. Not bad.
