According to Detroit Free Press the Packard "Weather Conditioner" was announced for the first time in November 1939.

Hi Guscha,

Thanks for your inquiry of other volumes that provide an illustrated history of automotive air-conditioning.

Volume 1 is in the editor stage. It probably won't be published until next spring, 2020.

Volume 2 covers the reintroduction of factory air in cars. Covered are the 1953 Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Lincoln, Packard, and Chrysler cars-Chrysler, Imperial, DeSoto, and Dodge. Those chapters have already been written. Publication should be in 2020.

Volume 3 covers the 1954-1957 A/C cars.

Volume 4 covers the 1958-1960 A/C cars.

No, no cars out of the USA are covered.

Hi Guscha,

Thanks for the scans of The Detroit Free Press, Sunday, April 7, 1940 and the Indianapolis Sunday Star, March 24, 1940.

The Indianapolis article included an image of the V.P. of Packard Indianapolis, Inc. pointing to the 1940 Packard A/C compressor. Too bad its a poor image. I will contact the Indianapolis library for a possible better image.

Please find attached an abstract, copied from AIRAH, the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating.
Thanks for the lookout to the volumes to come. I was especially looking for information related to the first Russian A/C attempts in the mid of the 1940s, a story that is inextricably linked with Packard.

Hi Guscha,

Thanks again for the heads-up. Yes I have seen and used Dr. Bhatti's ASHRAE article, with their approval.

Sorry I cannot offer information about the Russian Packard want-a-be cars.

See ya,

Not until Jan of 1955 was something offered to the rest of the public for Ice Cold drinks.

Hi Wesley,

Thanks for the Cellarette, AC evaporator, and the San Francisco Examiner pics!

Do you know anything about this Packard? The Cellarette looks hand-crafted, due to the light colored wood and the absence of the "Conditioner" and "Cellarette" switch between the upper cabinet doors. (See attached)

Is this owner approachable?

This could possibly be an addendum to the 1941 Packard AC chapter.

Thanks again,

Allen

Sorry, I don't. I was just transferring the pictures over from Facebook since I know some people don't use Facebook. The person who posted the pictures, Jeff Smith. Maybe he can give you some more information on where he got the pictures.
