Air Conditioner Kit, 1953 - 1957 Vintage Beetle Under Dash Unit
Air Conditioner Kit, 1953-57 Standard Beetle, Vintage Under Dash Unit are the finest quality A/C Kits available for your VW. These blow ice cold on even the hottest days (no exaggeration!), and the installation is such that you are not hacking up your car! We provide compressor mounting for stock carburetors, or any dual carburetors you may be using, so no matter what you have we probably have a kit for your car!
This model uses the Black Textured Under Dash Unit which can be painted to match the color of your dash. This kit retains the use of your crankshaft pulley, and a single fan belt or you can use a serpentine belt system of your choice The crank pulley choices are completely up to you, either stock or aftermarket aluminum, or serpentine.
The Evaporator Unit is rated at approximately 13000 BTU and will exchange approximately 290 cubic feet per minute. The Evaporator and Condenser Assemblies are KEY in how much heat the AC System can remove from the interior of your car!
Make sure you specify the year and model of your car, AND what carburetor(s) you have, in the Special Instructions Field during checkout, so we can double check and build you the correct system.
Shipping to Hawaii is possible, but will result in an additional cost (as you guys already know!).
You do not need a machine shop or a fully equipped garage to install this kit, normal hand tools, a couple hole saws, and an electric drill are all that's needed! You only need to drill Five (5) holes through the body, Four (4) for the A/C Hoses, and One (1) for the Evaporator Drain Hose. These kits use environmentally friendly R134A Refrigerant, and use a modern rotary A/C Compressor, for minimal vibration and power loss. In fact, these compressors take approximately 1.2 to1.5hp to drive at full output! This means that even the meager 1200 cc or 40hp VW Engine will be able to drive this compressor, so you can drive your beloved VW in the heat of Summer without having to always bring a change of clothes with you!
