Hello puttenham,

Thanks for the research. You may also find some good info about the air conditioning component manufacturing as well as contracting with Packard, GM/Cadillac and Chrysler.

Good luck.

Hello Puttenham,

Thank you for responding.

1. Can you obtain a high-res (300-600dpi) scan of the patent for the Bishop & Babcock compressor? It might be interesting for its illustrations.

2. Yes, I have commented many times in the AACA forum under the subject of automotive air conditioning.

In fact I drove from Texas to Hershey a few years ago for research assistance. Matt Hocker of the AACA Library scanned over 800 images of brochures, owner's manuals, data books, etc. for my project, then burned them on discs for me. What an adventure. AACA Library is the best.

3. Thanks for the Cleveland Public Library search of Bishop & Babcock. It looks like there is information there. Would it be possible to inquire further about their air conditioning contracts with Packard, Cadillac (1941) and Chrysler (1940-1942)?

An inquiry may fill your big time gap for your knee recovery. I remember being home bound for three months after neck surgery--I got stir crazy!

Thanks again for your input,

Hello, Let the Ride Decide,

These three 1941 Packard 180 images with the air conditioning compressor are excellent.

I would like to include them in my 1941 Packard AC chapter, of my Illustrated History of Automotive Air Conditioning book, published soon.

I would like to credit you and the owner of the Packard. Do you know who owned it? Also, the 180 model?

I am seeking higher resolution images. Would you kindly send them to me in my email? I will PM my email to you.

Also, I would be interested in AC-related images and literature of other cars in the 1940-1942 and 1953-1960 years.

Thank you,

Hello, Owen_Dyneto,

Thank you for the two AC compressor images of Dwight Heinmuller's former 1941 Packard 180-Model 1442 Touring Sedan.

I would like to use them if it is possible to send them to me in higher resolution for my nearly completed book, An Illustrated History of Automotive Air Conditioning.

These compressor images will supplement Dwight's other images already in the 1941 Packard AC chapter.

One image is his incorrect for 1941, medium blue upper paint and gray lower paint scheme. Dwight said that he bought the car with the story that the paint shop erred in the two-tone scheme. It turns out, however, that the 1942 Packard model did use the darker upper color and lighter lower color two-tones.

Another image is a chromed "AIR CONDITIONED" script on the hood.

I have attached both images here.

If it is possible, would you kindly send the two compressor images as a PM to me.

Thanks,

Seeking 1940-1941-1942 Packard air conditioning literature that states the c.i.d. (cubic inch displacement) of the Servel-equipped air conditioning compressor.

Thanks,

Hello, and thank you Leedy for submitting the 1954 Packard air conditioning brochure.

I have a very poor copy of a copy in my files. Would you be kind enough to scan it for my files?

I will send you a PM with my email address.

Thank you,

Hi Wes,

Yes, I take Classic Car mag and saw it there.

Even better yet, I was able to order the Cormorant edition, Spring 1975, from the club with it as the cover story.

Before then, I have the SIA, Special Interest Auto's, copy of the article, 5-76.

Thanks for the heads-up. I appreciate it.


See ya,

Hi 32model901,

In the link, it showed a black two-door convertible, top down. The other thumbnails presented the dash and engine bay, among others. I don't see any air conditioning componentry on the car.

Am I missing something?

Hi LTRD,

Yes. The trunk-mounted evaporator cabinet is located in the front of the trunk, with the Frigidaire emblem attached.
