    68 adjacent only has factory heat & de-ice yet looks eerily similar as far as set up in the 70 --

    Heater hose routing looks like it was for a big block Camaro.

    Big block 2nd gens used same heater core as small block Camaro's, only 1st gen Camaro's were different.

    Dave in post #10 summed it up pretty well... Your car is or was an Air conditioned car at one time but it's been pretty much bastardized.

    only thing is now that i have it disconnected and i cut many of the rubber hoses form the back and disconnected what fills the void ? I mean i took the lower steering column cover off and then the ac module unscrews off the back on the left side that will leave a huge void an empty space where the module is at now ?

    Your car had factory a/c,someone just ripped the suitcase out from under the hood. You need the kit for an a/c car.

    Actually L-78 couldn't get air in 1970 either and 1971 and 72 Z's couldn't get air either.
