Nice looking GT-inside and out. I didn't recognize the AC console. Non-GM?

Nice looking GT, but I agree the steering wheel could have been upgraded to match the nice interior. Does no reserve mean the car will sell at whatever the highest bid is? And any guess at what that GT will sell for?
WES, That ac is never going to get very cold anyway. The compressor has a shunt hose looping directly from the HP outlet right to the LP fitting, completely bypassing both the condenser and evaporator. Not to mention no hose clamps!Without vents pushing air at the occupants, you could go into a full sweat, before cooling the entire cabin.
Yeah, my 70 GT with ARA air had the battery in the OEM position and it was a real PIA. But I would never put it right in front of the radiator. Even if airflow wasn't an issue, drawing battery gases through the radiator is not a good idea. If AGM, OK, but those didn't exist in the 70s AFAIK.That’s the ARA compressor, but a homeade console.
The battery is positioned like that because it is basically impossible to install or remove a battery with AC. GM AC mounted the battery sidewise like that and had a hole cut in the bellypan. ARA kept the original location but many people modify the battery mounting with the ARA kit. The owner just made the battery box a little too tall.
Could be. I also wondered why all of the outside photos are shot from the driver's side. Anyone thinking about bidding on this car should definitely check it out in person or have a qualified inspector go through it.It seems that there is alot of bondo under the fresh paint. Lower fender areas are wavey, no rear molding,...etc...etc....
