Default Ac and heater unit

Who makes a good ac and heater unit all in one. My 1965 mustang has never had ac and I'am looking to get ac in it and i was thinking I might just get a one in all unit. Let me know if you have one in your car. I saw the one OLD AIRE has but I kinda want some more input from my fellow VMFers. Thanks in advance

When I had my car in the restoration shop I had them put in a "firewall foward" AC kit from Classic Auto Air (Classic Auto Air - Air Conditioning & Heating for 70’s & Older Cars & Trucks.) which I'm happy with. They have other kits for your year. Did your car have a "heater delete" option or is it shot? Anyhow, you may have to get a heater from a vendor.
PS: I'm no expert in this field....

I have the factory Ac and heater in my 66, but I have seen and operated the Classic Auto Air "Perfect Fit" system, and the AC portion is very good. Didn't try the heater, since it was summer. This replaces the factory heater, and uses the chrome controls already in the dash. The only visible portion of the unit is a few AC outlets at the bottom edge of the dash.

I installed the Vintage Air Perfect fit system on my '65 a while back.

I like the system and it cools great, but it required some additional mods. I upgraded to a 130A 3G Alternator to take care of the extra current draw. With the AC on in traffic, the temp gauge would slowly get too hot, So I installed a bigger 2 core aluminum radiator with a Taurus electric fan.

I have dealer installed a/c on my 65. I have it charged with r134 and it works pretty well. If I didn't have air I'd use more modern parts under the hood but kinda like the oddity of the under the dash unit. The 65 units have a nice chrome front and modern looking round vents.

Did you have trouble with finding the right pulley for your car? Was it an easy install?

Classic Air here. Have not run it yet since the car is still a work in progress. But I just did the install of the under dash unit last week, and it fit like a glove. I also had a few tech questions when I started the under hood portion, and the techs were fantastic to work with on phone calls.
