Technically it is an evaporator, but the average guy calls it a heater box. I found it was hard to locate on eBay, you'll have to try different names.

Both the evaporator case and the blower case on eBay appear to be from a 67 Mustang ( or possibly Cougar). The 67 case splits along a straight line. The 68 case splits along an uneven line, but is otherwise identical.

The 67 blower includes a cooling hose for the fan motor. This was eliminated in 68

Searching evaporator gets a ton of replacement coils, good to see they're still making them. The install of an original (or repro) doesn't appear much different than the Classic kits. The generic kit for a grand looks appealing if I wasn't trying maintain the stock look/parts. The mod won't match my Marti Report but the report isn't driving the car in the summer in Vegas. Rebuilding 67-68 cores at least keeps it closer to what came off the line.

That was my feeling as well, and nothing fits like a factory part

Cheers! I just picked that one up. Seemed too good to pass up even though I'm not quite at that stage of the project. I was hoping to have it back on the street later this evening, ready to start shaking down and seeing what 11 years of storage had done to it. A last minute tooth extraction has slowed that down a bit.

I have probably 5 or so of the original 67 68 or 69 70 in dash AC units and blower assemblys laying around. I would love to get rid of them

Call and ask them if they have a used case available that you can buy along with their new High efficency Evaporator. The rebuild is pretty easy although you may have to make some Fiberglass repairs on the case which re often cracked. You'll need:

67 or 68 Case (They are different but interchangeable) BTW they are available New
https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-1967-Ea...gAAOSwMNVa-exA

Blower motor asssembly
Diffuser assembly
Defroster assembly (Available new)
Side vents (Available new)
Center Vent
Control cables (Available new)
Control Hose (Available new)
Vent Hoses (Available New)
Hose retainers (I made my own)
Expansion Valve
Water Cutoff valve (Repros available)

There are lots on Ebay although the prices may not be cheap.

Hmmm...
CORRECTION:

Sorry looked at the wrong of the two links. The new one at $325 looks like dead ringer to my original.
The used one with the attached fan looks nothing like mine.

The one with the fan attached (the one I got) is the blower/plenum assembly. It goes in the center of the dash. The core case (the square one) fits behind the glove box and connects to the blower assembly. Together they make the bulk of the interior assembly of AC and heating.
