Feature Segment

A sweet Mach 1 - with a full Classic Auto Air OEM setup!

This week’s podcast show guest is Mr. Tim Cordileone from Classic Auto Air. He’s been with the company for 18 years and admits that he’s a Pontiac guy by birth! Classic Auto air specializes in the air conditioning segment of the restoration market and is divided into two divisions: “Perfect Fit” and “OEM.” Mike works in the OEM section where they offer a plethora of A/C related services, such as restoring and rebuilding all components of a factory A/C car, and retrofitting certain makes and models of cars (especially Mustangs) that never had factory A/C with a system that duplicates it in ever way, shape, and form (down to the levers and bezels on the dash!).

A Classic Auto Air factory A/C System

Their Perfect Fit system is a new lineup of A/C and heating systems designed specifically for the majority of the muscle and classic cars out there. They don’t got with the “one size fits all” approach at all, but instead create a new system that fits each model individually, meaning the ’64 Chevelle system will be far different than the ’68 Charger system. They come equipped with carefully sized, large, separate A/C and Heat coils just like factory (OE) systems, as the separate coils improve the cooling and heating capacity of the total system.

Thanks for the interview, Tim! I look forward to the next one. I just want to know though, does your Firebird have A/C? 🙂
