    Most seem to start with the Olds Vintage Air kit. I think there is a Board member making brackets. There is a thread on the bracket issue.

    If it originally came with air and some of the components are still there, it is not that hard (mostly need the ac box on the firewall, controls in the cabin, and compressor brackets... everything else you can buy new). If it never did, it would require a lot of parts.

    I put factory air in a 77 Pontiac Sunbird. Tough job but worked way better than the dealer installed air it was delivered with. For cars that did not come with factory AC, generally they were without tinted windows as well. I would recommend you find a donor somewhere so you can get all the little parts - relays, brackets, harness, etc. I would use a ‘71 or ‘70 since they didn’t use the thermal limiter switch that is problematic
