Air con question..

I have, I believe, to be a late production 95 90 SW. 475/500 It has the "newer" style air conditioning. I'm just curious if they switched styles late in the cycle or if it was installed aftermarket. Most of the 95's I see have picture 1 while mine and a few others seem to have the second picture...

just curious...

Woah Picture 1's dash is really nice!!! That said, they were all dealer installed options in 1995 and yours was likely installed by the dealer a couple of years down the road.

Is that your dash and so it doesn't impact "originality" then?

Yup that's my dash. In terms of "originality" I'd consider it a slippery slope. If you let this slide, pretty soon you'll be fitting non-original rear speaker boxes made of metal, a Puma hood, and boost wheels.

I was thinking more of a boost bonnet and Puma wheels just to keep it all original..
