Mid-Fifty's sells a reduced 3" glove box for use with the Gen II kit. It will not work with the Gen IV kit. I have about 3/4" space behind the glove box door to the face of the evaporator.

The evaporator takes up almost all the space under the dash. I did an overhead console and put my DVD/Backup camera, switches, front speakers and a small glove box for papers etc. up there. Or you...

I used the condenser for the 53-56 pickup. What I did was order all the individual parts to make my own system. I am running a small block MOPAR so I needed the MOPAR brackets for compressor. The Gen...

I did Vintage Air in my '53 panel. However, I did not use the Gen II "kit" designed for the pickup truck. I ordered the larger Gen IV kit designed for station wagons and large sedans. It required...

F350 Milk Truck

While touring in Hanksville, UT ran across this Carnation milk truck. I am always amazed at how well preserved the trucks are in the Southwest.

I think Bobby nailed it. The air is coming through the grill and going up and over the radiator instead of through the fins. The '53-'56's have rubber seals above and below to direct the air into...

I've been called a rat rod on occasion. Guess it's the flat paint and general look. I don't consider it a rat but I just let it pass. Just an old fashioned home build hot rod. So then the next...

I am with Hagerty and had a claim this year. Someone backed into my truck in a Friday's restaurant parking lot while we were in there eating. About $2800 damage. They sent an appraiser to look at...

Anybody at Barrett Jackson has deep pockets. It's $500 just to get a buyers pass (and don't even think about the sky box unless you're spending at least a million). Then add 10% over the selling...
