Did they use the dash pad for one of the ducts? In other words did they have a "tube" built into the pad to carry the air to interior?

Don't want to hold up the thread, so,, here's the skinny.
The pad had grooves on it. The AC pad was in two pieces while the nonAC was a one piece pad. The joint of the AC pad was in one of the grooves so when installed,it appeared exactly like the nonAC pad.
Now this may not apply to all cars, but has proven to be true to all examples I've seen from the Pontiac , Mich plant. No reason for this is evident as the whole pad has to come off to remove the dash panel and there is no reason to remove any of it to service the air conditioner.


I'll try a new question in a different vein.
In 1904 a American car company built a two cylinder opposed engined car. The car was known as "Old porcupine". What was the company and why the monniker?

Knox motor car, Named old porcupine because of the cooling system that was a lot of "pins" coming out of the cylinders to dissipate heat. Joel

Wikipedia says, that it has flat-mounted single-cylinder engine, not 2-cylinder opposite...

Right you are. The engine was air cooled and had about 300 1/4" rods screwed into the cylinder jugs for cooling instead of fins. It was offered in single and two cylinder versions.
Don't trust Wiki. It is only as accurate as the persons contributing.

OK 34 , your on.

Pontiac 389 (I assume 326 as well, or maybe they used the 326?) . But there are TWO that I know of, how about the "Sesco"?

Brian


Pontiac Tempest motor.

YES, that is a four cylinder to those who havn't seen one.

Brian, You are correct!, I had a '63 tempest convert. and it had a four just like the picture. Wish I still had it! Floor is yours. Joel
And it was a 389 that I was thinking about, I forgot about the little chopped SBC.
