So I'm at the point in my build where I'm thinking about it's easier to @air-conditioning now than later . With that in mind what kind or brand of air-conditioning units have fellow members used?

I installed vintage air on mine. I didn't find a system to fit the car. so I ordered the parts from summit racing and made it fit. it works great. if you need the parts numbers I can give them to you.

+1 on Vintage Air.  It's what I'm installing in mine.

Keep in mind that you will need a fairly large system.  The Sebring folding top doesn't seal like a modern convertible top and you will need a lot of cooling power to offset the air leaks.  This is  the system I'm installing:

61005-VUZ-A - Gen II Super - Heat Cool and Defrost

It is big enough to cool a large 30's or 40's era sedan, so it should do the job.  Vintage air offers several different dash vents and control panels.  You will need a condenser for the radiator, dryer and hose kit.  As well as a mount for the compressor that fits your engine.

If you have an electric fan on your radiator, it will need some additional wiring for the AC.  The fan needs to run with the AC to keep system pressure from getting too high.

Thanks again Hotrod you always come through with very detailed information for us . How well does it fit behind the dash? is it concealed or do you see the unit?
