HZ Air Conditioning

Hi All,
Looking for any advice in regard to installing AC in my 6 cylinder sedan? I live on Central Coast NSW, just north of Sydney.
First quote was for $6000!
Another quote by a guy at Kurri Kurri (Mark Ostermann), recommended to me by Greg at Ozwreckers (Toronto), $4500.00. This is to integrate into existing vents. Included A6 Delco compressor, and I think factory parts.
Anyone have any two bobs worth to throw in? Use original parts, or get new?
Under dash vs integrated? I want to keep everything as original as I can.
Many thanks,
Todd

yea that sounds about right. Im in Cairns NTH QLD. A guy in our club has a HQ PREM and was looking at the vintage air under dash and to have the air come from his vents was quoted for the unit and installed around the $5 grand mark

what kind of car is it? if it has a bench seat or short console I would go for a "period style" under dash and use something much cheaper and more reliable than the A6...I've has Hzs and WBs some from only a couple of years old in the early 80s and I would not rate highly the original integrated air conditioning system ito air flow and reliability...that's my own experience..good for about 5 years from new then start spending lots of money..or as almost everyone on the road for the past 20 years doesn't have cold working air but ..."just needs a regas...." on a prev WB I tossed the A6 and replaced with a second hand Sanden and conv bracket as well as adjustable TX valve and never looked back...but that was after fixing the air flow problems with crappy vacuum pods in the heater box which is a total PIA..

Spend less than half that on a period style underdash unit with a sanden compressor and you'll have something that may not look as good but will actually work. Most pre 80s Holdens that had ac from new had either aftermarket or dealer fitted underdash units anyway. Your dash also wont have to be ripped apart.
