Which A/C to buy

Been looking for a A/C compressor mount for my FE390 to mount the compressor under my alternator. Found one on the 67 site. Need to order a A/C kit. I see classic air has a kit for the 58 and did not see one from Vintage air. I there another option out there? I have used Vintage on other projects with good luck.

There may not be a 58 F100 specific kit. Biggest thing I think is the engine brackets to mount the Sanden. Are you looking to do a Heat/AC unit behind the dash (between dash and firewall inside the cab) or just a hang on ac only unit underneath the dash? An underdash evap unit should be easy to find one that will fit and hopefully will look like you want it to - especially if you have a column shift. If one behind he dash, it would take some measuring and talking to customer service and looking at dimensions to get one that will fit.

The rest, as in condenser, dryer, bi or tri valve, and hoses, should be generic with the size of condenser the biggest thing to match up.

I did find the bracket to mount the sanden under the alt not on top. Looking for a built in AC heat unit to replace the factory heater.

I have been looking for a hang on ac unit for my 60 for years. All I have found are too wide to fit under there without hitting the stock heater.
