Don,

They are listed in the Vintage Air catalog, three different sizes for the Gen 2 units, these are the two smaller ones. You can buy them at Summit Racing for $49 plus $11 shipping.

Got some plastic AC mock-up units from Vintage Air to test fit the AC in my car. Both will mount to the firewall behind the dash out of sight and include AC, heat and defrost. The smaller unit, the Mini, is an easy fit but the larger, the Compac, is better suited cooling capacity wise for the size of the car but is a questionable fit due to the larger size.

I'm finally back working on my '49 Club Sedan after taking the summer off. I'm upgrading it to 12 volts to support the addition of air conditioning so it can be a 4 season car in the Florida heat and humidity. I'm also adding new gauges including a GPS-driven speedometer and electric windshield wipers. I'm posting the pictures of the project on the Packard Club forum because it allows captioning of the pictures which helps to explain the activities. I'll also post some highlights here.

Here's pictures of the new gauges mocked-up in an old dash.

I'm in the process of converting my "49 Club Sedan to 12 volt. It's not a simple conversion to do it right. I've seen a lot of hacked up conversions where people try to mate 12 volt to old wiring and components. My car is currently 6 volt positive ground and has an 6 volt alternator and all new wiring. I'm converting it to set it up for a Vintage Air AC system, Newport electric windshield wipers and a modern gauge set for the speedometer and four gauges. I'll post the conversion on the Packard Club Forum.

I have a set from Coker with wide-white tires mounted and center caps for my '49. Holding up well. Didn't cost all that much more than a reproduction set of large hubcaps and trip rings.
