"After not offering the option and seeing the pent up demand and sellers market where mfgs could sell anything they could produce no matter how it was equipped, they no longer had any incentive. "

It's true, the automakers could sell every car built probably four times over. However, they were not allowed to spike the retail prices of the cars, so their incentive came from loading every car with as many accessories as they could.

It's on the internet, so it must be true......

This claims to be an 1951 experimental A/C Unit put in a Cadillac for the GM President. Does anyone know about this car?

And, there is a 55 Caribbean with 55&56 seats?

Not to put too fine a point on it, but those photos were taken at the Packard Proving Grounds during a preview party rather than in Detroit at boulevard plant.

Oil? Water? Fresh air?

"Robert and Norma Norton of Houston, Texas, with their family, having cool air piped into their Cadillac sedan at a drive-in restaurant, even though the car already has air conditioning. This photo appeared in a Look Magazine article illustrating life before and after the Nortons had their home air conditioned. Photo by Jim Hansen. (via Shorpy)"

Old is new again! Who would have believed it.

A TV show did a feature on a chain of truck stops that have a modern version of this same ducted ventilation system for truckers who want to park overnight. As well as not having to leave their trucks idling to keep AC or heat going the modern systems business end offers an adjustable thermostat temp control, power and internet connections and I think a small TV. Even a poor trucker driving a rig with only a basic sleeping bunk can have the benefits of modern civilization.

1-17-22 Hi Guscha, thanks for the image of a Cadillac family being refreshed by a supply of cooled air delivered at a drive-in in Houston. I have a similar image saved from another magazine of the time period. As we always said in Houston, "it's not the heat but the humidity" that made our weather miserable. archiveman2977
