AMT 1964 Lincoln Convertible Annual


Recommended Posts

Some interesting accessories with this one. Shortwave radio, bug screen, water bag, a rear tonneau with windshield. Plus more. I am curious about why the air conditioner scoops for the rear fenders? Those were only needed if you had trunk mounted air conditioner. Which then required interior car air vents coming out of the rear package shelf. This type of air conditioner was not seen much after the late 1950's when in dash and under dash units became practical and available. And very rarely in convertibles before that. Plus the kit also includes an under dash air conditioning unit. So I wonder what the thinking was, with including those rear air conditioner vents?

Interesting that this kit has an under dash a/c when you could order the 1:1with a factory unit. While the Mark II had a rear vent style a/c in 56-57 by '60 the a/c was in the dash. It sounds like a neat set of extras either way. I'll watch the build up of this one with interest.
