AC System: The SS was an AC car from the factory. It has a new Vintage air system with custom electric controls grafted into the dash, replacing the old-style faceplate and cable driven unit, custom split center vent to increase airflow. Heat/cool/defrost. Chrome compressor under the hood. Cools nicely.

Paint: Metallic copper basecoat clear coat. Driver quality ;paint but presents nicely. Needs a cut and buff and some minor touch up on hood and along drip rails. Dash, steering wheel and door panels match. Trunk done in the traditional black/aqua splatter.

The radio is a Retrosound Audio (works intermittently). Horns will blow but do not work correctly (all new horns, horn relay, flasher and turn signal block and new OEM style rag joint in steering link) so needs connections checked. Wipers are not functional. New wiper motor and reservoir, but not currently connected. Manuals included for the GPS, electric gauges, Vintage Air and Radio.
