Gotta have good AC in Texas. I fixed my Bronco AC a few years ago and after that I drive the truck lots more, just because it is so much more comfortable, not juts on super hot summer days, but on muggy humid days and mornings.

It is worth a $1000 cash or whatever it costs to do it right in your truck.

Hoping to have everything buttoned up and back on the road this weekend. Will go for a new exhaust system in a few weeks when I get my electric cutouts in. Then will probably end up with a new set of wheels and tires in the distant future.

She is back on the road just have a few minor things to finish up in the next couple of weeks...new exhaust, alignment, redo all of the trim and get a good tune on the motor. Gonna bring it to a local shop and have them tune and dyno so I’ll have a good basis when I start adding more HP.

What engine is that? I’ve got a ‘72 I’m about to start on. And I’ll be needing an engine & tranny. Did you upgrade the headlights/lighting as well?

Man that thing is sweet, and I wish the one I about to try to buy looked that good. So did you do away with the factory heater box and just installed the vintage air system?
