Awesome project. Love the dual quads, they make the car! Don't take them off. 66s are supposed to have duals or trips. Is that the stock AC compressor, looks like something off a Mopar, interesting, or is that a 65?. Good luck on your build!
The AC is "era correct" ARA dealer installed option according to the AC shop here in town where I had the system evacuated. It's not my bag, I'm pulling the unit, I don't like the looks of it under the hood or under the dash. It obstructs ashtray accessibility, the accelerator pedal and the view of the 65' center console.
The AC works great and I will store it completely seals and out of the elements; someone may want it for their restore project somewhere down the road. I need to rummage through all my old brackets and relocate the alternator mount; then the compressor/evaporator/etc. will be removed as well.
This Tempest is a 1967, 69 428 block, 63' 421 heads and intake. I'v heard all the "it can't be this and it can't be that(s)". It is what it is.
Has a nasty tendency to hop like a Granny's "giant jack rabbit" when I nail it or try to do a decent drift/doughnut; I am always looking for advise on taming that problem. I know about zilch when it come to suspension.
Today's goal: 1. finish dynamat backside of dash, two layers on the floor, one layer along the quarters and the entire trunk.
2. Start the first stage of the dash bezel "refinish" for lack of a better term.
More pictures soon.
Truthfully; I'll be lucky if I get this goal done by the weekend. Moving kinda slow at the junction.
