Aftermarket climate control company Vintage Air has announced a new range of air conditioning systems for GM G-Body models, including the 1982 to 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass, as well as the 1986 to 1987 Buick Grand National and Buick Regal.
For those readers who may be unaware, the GM G-Body vehicles were underpinned by the rear-wheel-drive-based GM G platform, which was produced in its later iteration between 1982 and 1988. The G platform first appeared in 1969 as an adaptation of the GM A platform.
“The fifth-generation Oldsmobile Cutlass and the iconic Buick Grand National and Regal are now part of Vintage Air’s bolt-on climate-control SureFit product family, aligning these American classics with modern levels of comfort,” Vintage Air states.
Vintage Air is offering both a Complete Kit and a Evaporator Kit for GM G-Body vehicles, covering both factory A/C cars, as well as non-A/C cars. Additionally, the new kits were designed for easy installation and minimal modifications to the original vehicle firewall.
The latest Gen IV Vintage Air air conditioning system incorporates the company’s exclusive fully electronic microprocessor control system, eliminating the need for cables or vacuum connections. The system also incorporates separate high-capacity copper parallel-flow heat coils and aluminum plate-and-fin cooling coils, providing customers with infinitely adjustable air blends, blower fan speed adjustments, and high-volume dehumidified defrost. Additionally, the SureFit kits include an LED backlit control panel that bolts-in for a factory appearance.
Pricing varies depending on the kit and application selected. Per the Vintage Air website, pricing for a 1982 through 1988 Grand National SureFit Complete Kit starts at $2,095, while pricing for a 1982 through 1988 Grand National SureFit Evaporator Kit starts at $1,300. Vintage Air also offers individual components such as a GM G-Body Control Panel Kit ($219) and GM G-Body Modified Hose Kit ($170).
Indeed, for those enthusiasts looking to restore their old GM G-Body, or those who simply want the comfort and convenience of a modern A/C system, Vintage Air has the right components to make it happen.
