I am looking to buy the complete air conditioner system for my 57, a vintage air system. Any suggestions on who has the best prices? I have looked at Danchuk and CCI both are about the same price.
That's what Kikin Street Rods does for me, several items have just been dropped shipped to me instead of going to them.You can call any number of dealers and get a price. Check Ebay too. Get their shipping price too.
A friend of mine ordered one from a smaller dealer far from home. His unit was drop shipped from VA in San Antonio, and the shipping charge was relatively low since the charges were only from San Antonio to Houston. Since you're in Shreveport you may be able to do this too.
The other angle you can take is to buy it from a dealer close to home that has it in stock, and minimize shipping that way. This also might be a good time of year to take advantage of that.
Thing is, most smaller dealers don't stock the complete Sure Fit units, if they are an installing dealer they usually keep only a good stock of the popular installation needs.
