Vintage Air, which has been making cars cooler — and we mean that quite literally — since 1976 has expanded its product line with a new Gen IV SureFit air conditioning system for 1973-79 Ford F-100 pickup trucks and 1978-79 Ford Broncos.

“This system is available as both a Complete Kit as well as an Evaporator Kit and installs with minimal modifications to the original firewall,” the Texas-based company said in its news release.

“The 1973–79 Ford F-100 pickup truck has amassed quite a following of classic truck enthusiasts, particularly in recent years. The Vintage Air Gen IV SureFit air conditioning system makes adding modern climate control to these classic trucks a breeze, and it fits all variations of 1973–79 Ford F-100, F-150, and F-250, as well as the 1978–79 Bronco.”

The company said the Gen IV system is its most powerful “and intelligent” climate-control system and uses an electronic microprocessor control system that eliminates cables and vacuum connections.

“The separate, high-capacity, parallel-flow copper heating coils and aluminum plate-and-fin cooling coils provide outstanding performance and infinite ‘just right’ temperature air blends, blower fan speed adjustments, and high-volume dehumidified defrost,” the company said. 

“The kit also includes a new bolt-in, three-lever, fully electronic LED backlit control panel that replaces the factory control panel.
