OPG now shipping right hand mirrors

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 9:56am 11 Comments

On 12/14/15 I placed an order with Original Parts Group for a right hand mirror for my 64. They told me they were back ordered. Every few months I would email them asking about the mirror and got the same response. After a year I gave up. Yesterday I got an email saying they shipped the mirror. It will be a little project to install but nice very nice have.

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
