    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.

                  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?

                    1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case

                        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.
