    Yes Joe that is what I was trying to determine as to which rod is correct. I have seen several A/C GTs and was curious what is CORRECT. I have seen consistency in the placement of additional holes above for the prop rod pivot and clip as well as the retainer clip on the driver's side. The heads of the bolts for the condenser also face out not the nuts. Looking at parts there seems to be 2 different prop rods for the A/C plus the regular one for non-A/C. The commonality of the A/C prop rods is the bend near the center.
    Thanks

    If anyone has a body parts manual, it would be interesting to see if there are different part numbers for props on AC equipped cars.
    See Post #9.

    I dunno. Also, the anchor/pivot end has an interesting double bend. It looks like a factory job (versus local fab), fits like a glove, everything clears nicely, and it deploys and stows easily. My other two Hawks have the crook at the top, about 6" long, where it attaches to the hood when raised. But neither of those cars came stock with AC, as the one in the pix above did.

    The parts book shows 2 different prop rods with or without A/C. Depending on the condensor you may be able to use either one.

    It would seem that in the pics above, the hose routing wasn't well thought out with them running over the top of the belts. However with my rig, it's going to be a challenge to remove that lower hose from the compressor without a lot of other things first..

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to take and post pics. It appears that the factory drilled additional holes above the regular non-A/C holes and reinstalled the clip for the base of the hood support rod on the passenger side. They apparently added the clip with a bolt attaching it on the driver's side also above the original hole as the rivet was not used. My condenser is attached at the top with the bolt heads OUT with the lock and nut toward the radiator. I still am not sure what the rod should look like as there is a difference shown. I thought there would be a bend also where it clips in the down position.

    Here are a few pix of the hood prop on the wife's 63GT which, AFAIK, has factory AC. Click image for larger version

    This 1954 GT has a factory AC. It originally belonged to a fellow that worked at ONAN Corporation.

    Thank you ColoradoHawk. I do need to see the right side where the clip is for the hood support. Could you post a pic of the rod itself as I believe it is different from a non-A/C rod. I may need to buy or make one. My condenser mounts in the same position and hardware as yours does.
