Hey guys, 

Has anyone messed with the ATC on our cars? Was thinking that since I'm pretty much cloning the remaining season 2-4 TV Hero Torinos, I may as well also add ATC in place of the standard air conditioning IF I can locate all the necessary parts and discuss the ins and outs of the system with someone who has the setup on their car.

That is the last remaining option I need to incorporate into my build to have mine pretty much optioned just like the TV Heros.

Thanks for your input.....

Nice, I didn't know those had the ATC in them. I have seen the components on eBay over the years, but never thought hard about trying to collect or install them. My donor truck(for the body) has no AC, so I have to retrofit something for AC.

Since my truck has less holes in the firewall, I have considered comparing the AC box of my other one, to a spare EATC box I have from my first Mark VII. The Mark VII has basically everything in the dash, in one assembly. If I thought I might have space for the EATC control, dash panel, I might see if that could work for mine.

I hope you will find all of those pieces for the ATC, that would be nice to have in the vehicle. Best of luck,
Don

Have decided to just stick with the manual AC due to the likelihood of not finding all the necessary bits and the condition of those that I do...

Thanks all 👍
