Custom Built Heater & AC housing

Has anyone ever custom built a Heater & AC housing for under the dash?
I have a complete evaporator & heater unit from a '95 Roadmaster, but it is too large to fit under in my '37 Roadmaster dash. Thought I may be able to fab a smaller housing that can be used with the heater core, evaporator and blower. Fewer controls, but custom made to fit under my dash.
1) Has anyone done this, and how did it turn out?
2) What material would you recommend for the housing?
Pictures would be great.
Thanks
Mutt

The HVAC box is tailored to fit specific airflow paths, including the flapper doors that direct airflow. You'll be time and money ahead to just find one that fits.

Hi Joe,
I think you're right. I'm just exploring possibilities.
1) Did you end up using a "88-91 Honda Civic and the 85-90ish GM N-body cars (Grand Am, Cutlass Calais, etc.)" as you discussed in the "Junk Yard A/C System" thread?
2) If so how did that work out?
3) I have not tracked down a N-body to look at yet. Would the N-body blower come thru the firewall behind the engine in a traditional rwd?
4) Did you ever look at 90's buick century's or regals?
Thanks
