Fox body AC system in a 1969 Mustang?

Recommended Posts

When restoring a 69 coupe I bought a 1987 Mustang for its tranny and 302 EFI system. I would like to know if the 87 AC system would work with my 69.

Would probably take more effort than its worth honestly, especially after removing the stuff from one car and getting new hoses made up to fit, re-sealing everything etc...

Just spring for the classic auto Air kit and be done with it.

The compressor is maybe the only thing that would work in your coupe.   If you have an AC car already, then it probably would work, but like Mike said, getting the fittings and hoses could be a problem.  If you do not have a factory AC car, then go with a new kit ( maybe without the compressor??)

Great idea though, jkish.

If the underdash component fit, theoretically you could fab up duct work and get pressure hoses made up to fit.  You'd still have to figure out the control board - would you use the Fox control panel or aftermarket or ____?

As the others have said, by the time you do all that, factoring in your time, you'd probably be better off going with a COTS (commercial off the shelf) system.
