    I've been on the lookout for a 70/71 instrument cluster with A/C controls. The one I have for the red car was left by PO in a 5 gallon bucket that, evidently, filled with water from time to time. Recently, I missed one that came up on FB but the seller has just a controller for what seems to be a fair price....honestly though, his doesn't look a hell of a lot better than the one I have....so my question is, are these hard to come by? If so, I may pick this one up just to have in case....

    Hi
    I don't have the cluster as I converted mine to digital but I do have the AC in dash controller. I am talking about the slide control's.
    Complete assembly.
    I can take pictures.
    Make an offer if interested.
    Thanks
    Greg

    Greg, I'm interested but I really don't care for making offers. If you'd like to sell it, let me know what you'll take and send me some pictures. I'll PM my email address. I can email a fedex shipping label, so all you'd need to do is pack it up and drop it off at any fedex agent.

    Sorry for the delay. If you still need the ac control unit I will be in the shop saturday and will dig it out and send some pictures.

    Hi Greg,

    No, I ended up getting the entire instrument cluster from the guy on facebook (evidently, the original buyer backed out). However, it's missing the blower switch. I'm now on the lookout for a blower switch. If you have on that works, I'm interested.

    Thanks for following up...no worries on the delay..I'm in no hurry.

    BT. One of the nice things about surfing eBay is the alternate parts that may also fit. From the listing................
    1967-1970 Ford Mustang, Fastback, Coupe, Convertible, GT, GT-A, California Special, Grande, Mach 1, Shelby GT-500, KR, Fairlane, Torino, Cobra, Talladega, Ranchero, Mercury Cougar, XR7, XR7-G, GTE, Eliminator, Comet, Cyclone, GT.

    Maybe that can give a bit more search range. Maybe the Mustang switches are being re-popped somewhere due to popularity and nobody bothered to see if it fits anything else. Good luck.

    Here are the pictures of the one I finally found.
    Worked good when I pulled it.
    Switch works in all positions.
    If it doesn't work send it back and I will refund all your money.
    $20.00 + mail.
