As mentioned in another thread, trunk A/C was not available from the factory in Hardtop models. Only the underdash system was available in that model.

Joe,

That is an interesting car. When you state 'underdash unit', do you mean just the controls? or the evaporator as well? If it has the clear tubes on the rear shelf, the evaporator would be in the trunk. I cannot see it having two evaporators.

Did you get the Production Order from the SNM for it yet?
