Oh, yeah! The time has finally arrived for G-body owners all over the world to bring their car’s climate control into the 21st century. For over the last several years, many of us have had to deal with ailing or broken A/C systems for our beloved G-bodies — including your’s truly! The outdated and R12-based setup just isn’t cutting the mustard, anymore.
Although some owner have had better luck than others with their car’s A/C system, many, many more have either struggled to keep their cars cool in the summer with the old units, or given up entirely by not turning it on at all or removing it entirely. Some, never had it in the first place.
Lucky for us, Vintage Air has stepped up to the plate with their brand new, just announced A/C kits for not only the popular Monte Carlo, but now, the ’86-87 Buick Regal/GN, and the ’82-88 Olds Cutlass.
