Anyone install a Nostalgic Air system in thier truck?

My work truck (78 supercab 4x4 w/ 400) needs real heat and defrost. I'm removing the broken factory A/C and rotten heater core, and putting a non-AC firewall panel over the gaping factory AC hole..... and am looking at installing a nostalgic air kit.

Any pics, tips, advice would be appreciated. THANKS!

Before you buy..........

DO check out Vintage Air. They started this corner of the aftermarket and have some really decent stuff. The owner of the company is a true hot rodder, deserves our support.
Looks like Nostalgic has a dedicated kit, though. It's really important the defroster can use the A/C system to dehumidify the air, like factory A/C systems do.

Vintage Air doesn't make an AC for our trucks. They make one for the Bump sides though.

I installed the Nostalgic Air system with heat and defrost in my truck. Was an AC cab as well but I made a block off plate and installed the NAP unit.

It is working well, but the defroster is a little weak because it blows out all the vents. I recently started closing the dash vents when using the defroster and it works much better.

Everything fit nicely and I have no complaints. It makes for a much cleaner engine bay compared to OEM.

You can turn on AC with defrost to help with humidity.
