Vintage Air, the leading manufacturer of complete performance air conditioning systems for classics, hot rods and street rods, has announced the release of its updated Gen IV SureFit air conditioning system for the 1957 Chevy. This new system is available as both a Complete Kit and Evaporator Kit and features several new upgrades including a redesigned evaporator mounting bracket kit for easier installation.
As part of Vintage Air’s continuous improvement with engineering goals, the new 1957 Chevy SureFit kit now incorporates several features in response to customer feedback. Upgrades include a new condenser bracket and lines, a variable speed blower fan controlled through the OEM levers and redesigned mounting brackets to mount the evaporator assembly higher behind the dash that makes the system less visible and increases foot room. Refrigerant and heater lines also now route through the passenger side fresh air inlet for a cleaner firewall and less visible hose routing in the engine compartment.
The upgraded ’57 Chevy Gen IV SureFit air conditioning system will be available as a Complete Kit with molded center vent (Part Number 965701) and optional four vent (Part Number 965702) that offers the builder flexibility in louver placement. For those installations that do not require the under-hood components, Evaporator Kits are also available with molded center vent (Part Number 565701) and four vent (Part Number 565702) models.
Vintage Air systems are made in the USA, come with all parts necessary for a complete installation, and are backed by a three-year warranty.
