    Forget my prior posts, I just went out to the shed and found the OEM "hanging" evaporator. Thought I'd threw it away, but was hoping if it were still here, the mount ears would still be on it. The mounts are gone, but in comparing it with the aftermarket hanging evaporator I replaced it with, both are 16" wide. The aftermarket, in order to maintain clearance for the aforementioned vent door lever, wound up about 1 1/4" from the emergency brake handle. In doing so, it passes under the dash "lowered, drivers' side corner" I mentioned earlier by 2-3 inches, and is only about 1/8" below it. Matter of fact, the back edge of that corner has been planed down, in order for the OEM unit to sit a little higher, yet level, and not have an unsightly gap across the right side, below the radio area.

    Looking at your pic above, lifting the unit almost straight up would be very close, but that toggle switch beside the e-brake handle may get in the way. I wonder if the evap units sat any different on 4-speed cars. (Mine is column shift, automatic.)

    Can't believe some has not yet provided a pic.

    I did the same on a 64 GT. I can look tomorrow and take a few pics... There are two "L" brackets that fasten to the underside of the dash and unit hangs on the down struts. As far as I can recall from here, the unit is pretty much centered over the trans hump

    Hi Peter,
    That would be my guess, though the other type clears just fine too. This one does not have the crook on the end that goes into the hood lip when raised. It is also a couple of inches shorter, which causes the hood to sit a little lower when propped open.

    Thanks for the reply. It looks like the right fender vent lever would have to relocated then.
    Nope. That lever just barely cleared the upper side of the evaporator. And that is a good reference point for where to locate your evaporator, left-to-right.

    However, if yours needs to be bent a little, it will easily bend anyway it needs to go, just like a can lid. You'd have to bend it back & forth several times to break it. I bent, even contorted the heck out of the one on the 62GT to accommodate the EFI harness, which I chose to bring through the firewall right behind it.

    Gee! It takes guts to so publicly confess this horrible sin before the Studebaker world.

    Doing so to someone desperately in need of said parts is doubly cruel.

    Repent and seek forgiveness. We hypocrites of the "brotherhood of gathered deteriorating rusty parts" await your absolution.

Looking at your pic, if you move the unit to the right about 2", to where the upper left corner of the unit just kisses the edge of that lowered, driver's side corner, then raise the unit to about 1" below the wide, flat surface of the lower dash, you are right on target.
    Sorry I don't have pix, but if I could find the brackets I'd mail them to you. I likely threw them away, along with most of the rest of the OEM AC stuff.

    Do you have the brackets to install? In some GTs I've seen a long bracket that attaches to the evaporator as opposed to the Lark type brackets. It appears to aid in keeping the dash from cracking as it's 'glass. I haven't put the A/C in my '64 GT yet so can't help with dimensions & my buddy's GT w/A/C is all packed in the garage . Can you get info from the templates available through the Forum resource? Rob in PA.
    I don't have brackets. That's the problem. There's car 60 miles from me but I have to catch him when he's home.

    Found it on "Burmuda" using the wayback machine from my web site.
