New Glove box
#1
Hi all. I bought a Classic Auto Air perfect fit kit for my 73 Convertible. The car is originally a factory air car, but I don't think that matters for this post. The kit to my surprise had a new glove box in it, and it was a vacuum formed plastic which I think will be a lot more durable than the cardboard replacements. I don't have a part number but I assume if you call them they would sell it to you separately.

Here's what it looks like installed:

   

   

   

   

Hope this helps someone.

Amazing find!
I just can't work out why they would do that?

Very good to know somebody makes them!

I have never seen one in all my searching. Pretty sure they made this for their kits and not available elsewhere. I was surprised it was included, I really have no idea why they made it. I have a Camaro kit from them and in that case it is shorter than the original to accommodate AC on a non AC car. But since our cars have the same glove box regardless it doesn't make a lot of sense. The only thing I can think of is that the used an AC car for their template and assumed it had a shorter box, then replicated it.

Will need to contact the company. Did you mention Classic Auto Air?
You get a nice steel door and lock to secure a cardboard box?? , and
they warp with changes in the weather.

Nice little number there Greg. I too just had a Classic Air system installed in my '73, bought a new short cardboard one and had it carpet lined. Came out well,but as you say, there's no substitute for the more rigid durable plastic one.

BTW - The only thing i'm disappointed about my Aircon from Classic is it seems to me to be rather gutless for blowing out a powerful enough airstream - even on full fan speed.

What do you think of my critisism about that?

I knew what I was getting into, as I have the same system in my Camaro. For an all in one unit I don't think there's anything better. The difference between the factory cage fan and this system is huge, pardon the punSmile

These are all a little like how Jeremy Clarkson describes the AC systems in an old Lamborghini "It's as though there were a small mouse inside blowing at you, pfff pfff" SmileSmile

Thanks Greg,

I see what you mean.TongueTongue

But i find that interesting how they would get that wrong, given that the rest of it seems spot on in fact.
