Quality Manufatured: Air Conditioner Kit,  Super Beetle - 1971 - 1972, Convertible 71-72   Under Dash Unit are the finest quality A/C Kits available for your VW. These blow ice cold on even the hottest days (no exaggeration!), and the installation is such that you are not hacking up your car!  We provide compressor mounting for stock carburetors, or any dual carburetors you may be using, so no matter what you have we probably have a kit for your car!
This model uses the Black Textured Under Dash Unit which can be painted to match the color of your dash. This kit retains the use of your crankshaft pulley, and a single fan belt or you can use a serpentine belt system of your choice The crank pulley choices are completely up to you, either stock or aftermarket aluminum, or serpentine.
The Evaporator Unit is rated at approximately 13000 BTU and will exchange approximately 290 cubic feet per minute. The Evaporator and Condenser Assemblies are KEY in how much heat the AC System can remove from the interior of your car!

Make sure you specify the year and model of your car, AND what carburetor(s) you have, in the Special Instructions Field during checkout, so we can double check and build you the correct system.

Shipping Worldwide iwth DHL.

** Note**  In order to use the serpentine a/c unit, you must already have a serpentine belt system installed in the car.  We provide the compressor with the serpentine pulley, and the belt for it.  The rest must already be installed in the vehicle.

Installation: You do not need a machine shop or a fully equipped garage to install this kit, normal hand tools, a couple hole saws, and an electric drill are all that's needed! You only need to drill Five (5) holes through the body, Four (4) for the A/C Hoses, and One (1) for the Evaporator Drain Hose. These kits use environmentally friendly R134A Refrigerant, and use a modern rotary A/C Compressor, for minimal vibration and power loss. In fact, these compressors take approximately 1.2 to1.5hp to drive at full output! This means that even the meager 1200 cc or 40hp VW Engine will be able to drive this compressor, so you can drive your beloved VW in the heat of Summer without having to always bring a change of clothes with you!



***Note: When using Dual Weber style carbs it is necessary to replace the stock mechanical fuel pump with an electric model.  Also on the kadron style carbs change  to pivot or twist linkage.

I installed one of these years back in my 72 Super and it works amazingly well. Really keeps me cool, even in the dead of summer here in Georgia where temps are easily 95 degrees plus. Peripherally-- when it's raining or is really humid it keeps the windows clearer as well by taking all of the moisture out of the air. Took me a day to install and it wasn't so bad an install job. Then just took it to the shop to have it charged. Very pleased, and it's been 4 or 5 years since I installed it! John
