Default Vintage Air - what parts do you keep?

If you are installing Vintage Air do you keep any of the original heater, ducts, or heater controls to use with the VA system?

I have several old heater systems and I want to get rid of them.

VA's controls use the original heater control bezel and some of the components. Nothing else is re-used.

Read the VA instructions for your car and you'll get a clear idea of what they replace.

As Rick says, the original heater isn't used, but the controls ARE used.. (modified). it's the user's option whether to retain the original factory vents (or not). Most do not, but I like using vents when feasible, so I retained them in my '56 Nomad, and plan to do the same in my '57...

Thanks guys.
I was unsure about the defrost duct so I saved it.
Looks like I can toss it.

Donít throw it away - someone here may need one. Give it to them.

The defroster ducts are very cheap on the vintage air system and if I was doing it again I would look and see if the factory duct can be modified to work. By the way I had to cut mine to get it out of the car, clutch pedal assembly in the way
