Jerry, you sure are moving along with this project. Nice work too. What A/C system are you installing?

Yeah, he got a sex change when we decided to change his color from yellow to black. But we kept the name 'Buttercup'. It keeps people guessing.

What Make did the "Step-on" Parking brake come from?

You can read all about that over here:

On the same Post (above) Jerry also mentions the Trans. has a Jeep Top Cover, which only fits the stock Borg Warner T-86 (or Truck T-90) 3 Speed or Overdrive with the 6 Cover Bolt Top.

Mods ARE required on the Overdrives to allow Reverse when O.D. is selected though.

Does Vintage AC make a smaller unit that won't sacrifice so much of the glove box and still cool and heat a Hawk?

Early '80's GM pick up.

Yes, but you have to modify the cross bar a bit.

Yes, they make a smaller unit. I have one in Leo. But haven't finished Leo, so I can't say how well it heats and cools.
