Behr Air Conditioning System + Console

Recommended Posts

Price: $550
Location: Allentown, PA, USA


Pick and choose what you want!  This dealer-installed Behr AC system was removed (in stages) from my 1976 2002; the previous owner started to gather some of the mechanical bits and pieces to restore its full function, but since it'll be a cool-to-fair weather car for me - and because I need every bit of legroom I can muster - I've finally decided to remove the interior components and would love to find a new home (and enterprising new owner) for the whole system.  I would consider this the "Semi-Handmade" modified IKEA flat-pack version of an AC system: the big pieces are there, but "some assembly required."  Let's get right to the contents:


Interior Components

  • Center Console Faceplate
    • Temperature Switch with fan speed interconnect and thermocouple
    • Fan Speed Switch
    • Ashtray
    • Cutouts for: hazard switch, aux/dummy switch, and single-DIN radio head unit
  • Evaporator + Blower Unit
    • Supply and return tubing pigtails and fittings (original), insulated
    • Working blower! (see video at link below)
    • Complete directional vents with four-way adjustable louvers (no issues)
    • Control pigtails and connectors for fan speed and compressor clutch
    • Rubber drain tube
    • Mounting brackets
  • Console Sides
    • All intact, no large gouges or tears
    • Right side footwell air delivery hole is missing its louvered insert


Mechanical (Under-hood) Components

  • AC Crank Pulley
  • Compressor drive belt tensioner pulley
  • Original condenser fan
    • Wiring pigtail is in two pieces, but all of the pertinent connectors are there
    • I am happy to include an electric fan that was previously pulled from my nose panel (used for radiator cooling duty)
  • Original condenser (not sure how leak-tight this is)
  • New 10" x 18" condenser (never used)
  • Miscellaneous refrigerant lines - most of the flexible hoses are severed, but the fittings will likely be of use


Compressor Notes

  • I have the original York(?) compressor and mounting bracket; however, I'm pretty sure this is just a boat anchor at this point, and I am confident that anyone who purchases this system would want to upgrade to a modern Sanden compressor anyway.  Buyer's choice if they wish it to be included
  • This kit also includes a Sanden retrofit engine-mount bracket.


There are loads of how-to guides in the FAQs (and even a book by Rob Siegel!) on retrofitting an AC system to vehicles that were not so equipped from the factory, may with helpful links to (and screenshots of) components you'd need to complete your system.  This kit provides an excellent starting point.

$550 for everything, or pick and choose kit contents.  Depending on the location, shipping may be somewhat prohibitive - I am available to meet up in NEPA/SEPA and south-central PA, and Tri-State/Hudson Valley areas, as well as along the I-76/276 (PA Turnpike), I-78 (PA/NJ), I-81 (PA), I-95 (NJ) corridors.  Shipping throughout CONUS at buyer's expense.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
