I'm in the same boat about adding AC to my '67 S code GTA fastback now that I'm living in the desert. I say add it, but as factory correct as possible.

I put the original, as ordered styled steel wheels on my '67.

I'd also add front disc brakes as originally offered by Ford, but as mentioned drums will work fine.

Gary who works with my son Brian in the fab shop yesterday started cutting out the floor. As you can see something happened to the A pillar and rocker panel years ago. I had Gary start grinding and chipping out the bondo with a screwdriver and this is what we found.

I鈥檓 hoping mine aren鈥檛 as bad, I鈥檓 figuring at the very least I will have to fabricate the piece that the hinge bolts to. One of these days I really need to dig in to the cowls and see what鈥檚 going on. Here鈥檚 a couple of pics, they look a lot like those (I already have the replacement upper and lower cowl). I didn鈥檛 get a good shot of the a piller though.

Brazing is a bitch. Ours was wrecked on the driver rear and brazed back together. I get it was acceptable back then, but it doesnt make it any less wrong. I probably could have saved the driver wheel well if not for the brazing.

@rusty428cj on the quarter to roof seam and the cowl panels (places where there are 3 or more layers of metal), are they all held together with one set of spot welds? Drill through one set and release all the panels? Just curious... I'll find out soon enough!
