Can anyone identify this Air Conditioning Setup?

Recommended Posts

Hi there

My stock series one 240z (01/1971) came with this air conditioning setup (see picture).

Can anyone identify it?

Because i would like to restore it to entirely stock.

Unfortunately this right here is the best picture i have:

I have the same control knob in my 71, installed by the dealer. I don't know the manufacturer of the knob, but my setup has a York compressor under the hood.

My current A/C kit from MSA has that type of controller and uses a rotary compressor. It replaces the original unit I installed on my '71 in back in 1972. That unit used a York compressor and had a different control switch box that attached to the side of the center console. The original unit was an ARA brand after market install.

When I installed mine I eliminated the controller and went with a toggle switch. It made for a cleaner install and there is really no chance of the evaporator freezing up in these cars. At least not in Texas...
