Hi,

I am looking for a copy of 1954, 1955, or 1956 dealer or distributor air conditioning installation instructions used to install "factory air".  I am not looking for an original set of instructions sheets but good copies that I can use as a work manual.  1956 is preferred.  1955 as a secondary choice and lastly the 1954 year model.  I am willing to pay for copying and postage fees.  Templates would be a great plus.  In fact, I would take all these years plus 1953 and I will scan these pages and make them available to ALL Cadillac people at no cost.

Thanks
Ron

  As you are finding out , these sheets were discarded when the units were installed. If you look at the shop manuals of the period you will find views of the components as they were installed. Different year books have varying views. 56-front 54-side, 53-3/4 view
I have a copy of the student handbook from the GM training on air for 56. It isn't as complete as the shop manuals,but the course covered 53-56,with most of the material based on 53. As far as dimentions they best you may find is to measure cars that were air conditioned when new. If you are near Buffalo,NY, my 56 limo is avalible. Warren
