Sorry we hijacked your thread David.

A friend of mine is building a 1959 Chevrolet station wagon, and he is doing just what you are - adding an original knee-knocker.

I am trying to convince him to put an evaporator in the back too. We are stumped on exactly what that should be however.

I have thought about the same thing maybe I need to look at a 80s suburban and see how those rear ACs are mounted.. I think it would be hard to mount one back there though. I had thought about using a clear shower curtain and running it across the backseat on a station wagon.

Mark IV Inventor - Ice-n-Tropics help please

Post by MarkIVRVAInventor »

Hey Ice-n-Tropics - did you work for JEM Co. in 1960? My dad invented the Mark IV and I am trying to get as much info and memorabilia as I can find. You mentioned a museum of Mark IV AC stuff. May I ask where that is or how I can find info on it? Thanks so much :-)

Tim please forward to Marcia
Hope you were able to contact Milt Jones sons in Harlingen TX (Jones Auto Supply). Inventors who helped Mark IV That I worked for were Anderson, Oleson, and Pecorni (from tecumseh) and Hazzard. Another (outside JEMCO) inventor I worked for was Bob Bandeen (who wrote Mobil AC History) who had daughters, one named Marcia.
