Glove Box Question For Guys With Factory Air Conditioning

Recommended Posts

I installed the lower dash with the glove box door closed, but became a bit flummoxed when I opened the door. Is there really that little space behind the door?

Note to Midlife, those wires will be straightened up, put in place, and zip tied nice and purdy.

I went with vintage air in my car. I was able to use my original non ac glovebox liner. If I remember correctly I had to trim a small piece off the back side of the liner that isn’t noticeable when it’s installed.

Mine probably worked because I’m using a vintage  air kit. It must have more room behind the glove box. I’m using my original factory non ac insert.

According to my measurements of factory A/C and non A/C glove boxes, non-A/C box is about 1 5/8 inches deeper.

Just confirmed NPD sells both. The engineering inefficiencies in these 50-year-old cars always amazes me. I can't imagine maintaining 2 part numbers for a glove box door instead of designing stuff that, you know, fits both builds. :)

A/C glove box fits both cars, but you can’t fit as many speeding tickets in it.

That's going to be a problem for Bob after he gets it installed :)
