Do a search for air conditioning. There are plenty of threads already on this subject.

I would only consider VINTAGE AIR, from San Antonio, TX.

If the car was a 260 z car then why not use the stock datsun A/C unit? ( I don't know how stock your underdash area is) If it is reasonablly intact, then just get the motor bracket, (zoop's, bill's, or alan grove are just a few bracket mfgs),for the right size compressor that will supply the system and a condenser that will fit the radiator. Then plumb it in. In my experience the stock evaporater units are alot better than the aftermarket stuff. Another alternative to vintage air is a company called old air
Those guys are a little better with custom applications. They helped me get several really custom setups up and working. (remote condenser in the trunk was a doozy) Hope this helps, mikey
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
