Modern climate control for the second-generation Pontiac GTO, LeMans and Tempest


Vintage Air, manufacturer of complete performance air conditioning systems for muscle cars, hot rods and street rods, has announced the release of its new Gen IV SureFit air conditioning system for the 1968-72 Pontiac GTO, LeMans and Tempest. This new system is available as both a Complete Kit and Evaporator Kit and is designed to be a bolt-in installation with minimal modifications to the original firewall.

The Gen IV air conditioning system is Vintage Air’s most powerful and intelligent climate control system – employing exclusive fly-by-wire, fully electronic servo motor controls that eliminate cables and vacuum connections. The evaporator’s separate high-capacity copper parallel-flow heater coil and aluminum plate-and-fin cooling coil provide outstanding performance and infinite “just right temperature” air blends and blower fan speed adjustments as well as high-volume, dehumidified defrost. The Pontiac GTO/LeMans/Tempest SureFit kit also includes a new bolt-in LED backlit control panel.

The new 1968-72 Pontiac GTO/LeMans/Tempest Gen IV SureFit climate control system is available as both a Complete Kit, starting at $1500, which includes the condenser, compressor with mounting bracket and refrigerant hose kit, or an Evaporator Kit, starting at $850, for those installations that do not require the under-hood components. Complete Kits and Evaporator Kits are available for both factory A/C cars and non-A/C cars.

Vintage Air systems are made in the USA, include all parts necessary for a standard installation and are backed by a three-year warranty. For more information on the new Vintage Air Gen IV SureFit climate control system for the 1968-72 GTO/LeMans/Tempest, visit www.vintageair.com .

  1. I hope it works better than the system they offer on the 1964-7 GTOs! Also, the controls need to work AS the factory system did! The older system needs some help to work as a factory system!
