You got it, that is exactly what it is about. On the 68 they changed the bumper to sort of a "floating" bracket on a rubber bushing, good thinking!

It's your floor.

This will test your accessory knowledge. Whose aftermarket air conditioner kit was this and what was the flat rate time for installation? Extre points if you can tell me if the right kit was installed and why.

I believe that is a Sears Crapsman with a John Beere generator. You can find these in the Arctics.

"That'd be a Bubba-Joe McCoy A/C kit. Flat rate time for install is 2 hours. They used the wrong kit as that one is for a TWO-door, but they put it on a FOUR door car!"
submitted by DAVE 57210

Gentlemen you are all very close :

It is indeed a Bubba-Joe McCoy A/C kit manufactured by Sears Crapsman

I am not going to comment as to whether Street Beasts had any thing to do with the manufacturing or installation as I don't want to be sued.

Installation time was way off. This is a week end job. Eight half snockered men ( only two actually working ) were involved plus 9 1/2 cases of " Old Tummy Turner" beer was consumed. The plan of action alone took the first day. What you don't see in the picture is the cleaver quick release mechanism for the external power unit. That unit also powers the owners trailer where the Gang meets to watch weekly NASCAR racing or if a off race weekend, Dukes of Hazzard tapes shown on a 19" b/w Zenith fed by a Beta-Max player. ( I'm not sure but additional sounds might have been supplied by Brian's 4-track player, but don't quote me!)

Dave was right on the button noticing that a two door kit was installed on a four door vehicle as supplied by their local NOPA-O'Hooly's-Retarded Auto Parts store whose motto is "If you want the right parts the first time, this ain't the place", but that's not the glaring error that you all missed and I am quite disappointed that nobody noticed that they did not use the color coordinated duck tape that should have been used.
Silver duck tape just cheapens the job!

Somebody jump in with another question.

Are you talking about the tach drive on the back of that generator?

Or the condenser on top for radio interference?

GM also used that type on a few of the first generation 'Vettes, like in '56. But that ain't a 'Vette shown.

I think Colbalt 327 has it right and that pic is from a early Vette. The picture is taken at a funny angle. That's a Delco-Remy tag on the generator and other than my Ford 4000 tractor I can't think of any other america made car that used a generator tach drive. Most all of the other mechanical tach drives came off the distributor.The Mopar Family and Ford used the distributor housing. My 55 T-Bird had one.

Yep it's an early Vette, this one in particular was a 56 or a 57 I don't remember. So unless Cobalt can tell us why this was the wrong set up in this Vette (mistake in the restoration?) it's your floor. But He hit it on the head saying 56.

You can see the Vette's valve cover and exhaust manifold there. But I was holding the camera at a funny angle so I could capture the tach drive without capturing the very distinctive Corvette valve cover.

Well Colbalt 327 hasn't jumped in yet so I'll toss one out. Since we're looking at early Covettes, I'll ask another question about that subject.

Without raising the hood or opening the doors how can you identify a 1956 Corvette from a 1957 Corvette?

Your going to love the answer!
