Vintage Air, the leading manufacturer of complete performance air conditioning systems for classics, hot rods, and street rods, has announced the release of its all-new Gen IV SureFit air conditioning system for 1973–1979 Ford F-100 pickup trucks and 1978–1979 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 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 Gen IV air conditioning system is Vintage Air’s most powerful and intelligent climate control system. It employs an exclusive, fully electronic microprocessor control system that eliminates cables or 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 kit also includes a new bolt-in, three-lever, fully electronic LED backlit control panel that replaces the factory control panel. The factory A/C kit uses the original in-dash louvers, and new OEM style in-dash louvers are included with non-factory A/C systems. The Gen IV SureFit air conditioning system Complete Kit is available for 8-cylinder factory A/C and non-factory A/C vehicles (Part Numbers 954160, 951160). For those customers who do not require the under-hood components, Evaporator Kits are available for factory A/C and non-factory A/C vehicles (Part Numbers 754160, 751160). All kits are also available for 6-cylinder models.

Vintage Air SureFit systems are proudly manufactured in the USA, include all parts necessary for installation, and are backed by its standard warranty.  For more information on the Vintage Air Gen IV SureFit Kit for the 1973–79 Ford F-100 and 1978–79 Bronco or any other product, visit or call (800) 862-6658.
