How To - Install A High-Tech Climate Control System
With Classic Auto Air’s Perfect Fit Elite system, owners of ’65-’66 Mustangs now have an option for modern A/C and heat
When Classic Auto Air introduced its Perfect Fit in-dash climate control system for vintage Mustangs, it was a renaissance because it was easy to install and very much out of sight once in place. Operation utilized the factory heater control and cables.
Fast-forward to 2011 and the Perfect Fit Elite climate control system for classic '65-'66 Mustangs. This new system uses electronic control with no cables and greater ease of use. Adjust your Mustang's stock heater controls to get smooth, quiet changes in airflow and temperature.
Climate control adjustments are made via cable integrators and a compact microprocessor, which works with your Mustang's sliding heater controls to make the Elite system both high-tech and stealthy, which means no one will ever know it's there. And come chilly weather, there's warmth on your feet and effective windshield defogging, which makes the CAA Elite system a great modification in terms of comfort and convenience.

Because we've already shown you the Perfect Fit system in previous issues, we're going to touch on the highlights of the Elite version and how best to approach the project.
Classic Auto Air strongly suggests you work closely with its staff when ordering the Perfect Fit Elite system in order to fine-tune your installation. Perfect Fit is designed and engineered specifically for '65-'66 Mustangs, which means it isn't an adaptation of a system for another car. It hangs neatly behind your dashboard, leaving your feet clear to move around. When it comes to outlets, Elite arrives with four individual outlets. However, Classic Auto Air offers a variety of different outlet types and styles that will also work with the system.
