53 ford truck heater & Air

Does anyone know what I could use in my 53 ford f-100 for a heater and air conditioner in the cab where the original was? That of course does not take up any more room than the old one. Something out of a used vechicle preferably.
Thanks

I would say get your tape measure. take some measurements that you have to work with and hit the junkyards. Most lateer model stuff will be smaller that the orginal stuff from your truck.

Heater stuff is easy. The ac stuff will be harder. Don't leave out the import cars, trucks and suvs.

Happy Hunting.

I don't think that the 53 F100 had a ac unit. Of course you could contact Vintage Air. They can get you everything you need to include the brackets. I do not have AC but I changed the heater motor with a motor I dug of the shelf at Pep Boys. I had to modify it, however it put out more heat and runs on 12 volts. Let me know if you want the part number.

I really like Old Air's Hurricane unit for the nostalgia look. Their evaporator is just about the same size and shape as the stock early pickup heaters (see page 26 here). I used one in my '53 Chevy pickup and put the '53 Chevy pickup heater decal on it. Looks factory stock!!
