    Dang thats sweet! I think I will wait until I have replaced my engine first before I do that. Less embarassing that way! :)

    I think this is the one I have. It should be the same as one off an early 90's caprice. I didn't have any decent junkyards nearby so I just bought the kit and had it powder coated....I think the 3rd Gen Camaro serpentine is also the same. You just need a reverse fan. I went with the Sanden compressor as opposed to the GM one that comes in the kit as I bought the AC kit with the new lines from Classic Auto Air and the Sanden compressor is supposed to be more efficient and reliable but who knows for sure.

    plan on using the Chevy serpentine set when I get to the engine, but did not know if the vintage air AC compressor would bolt up. enjoying reading your posts

    I believe both the GM pancake style compressor that is optional with the aepentine kit fits also. The sanden compressor needs a couple of spacers in the lower passenger side bolts .I can't remember if they came with the kit or if classic Auto Air supplied them.

    If you go vintage air I am sure they have something that works with the serpentine set up.
