Question Automotive Trivia

Which was the first car available with a mechanical air conditioning system utilizing a compressor, condenser, receiver drier and evaporator?

A. 1939 Packard, the only way to turn the A/C system off was to open the hood and take the belt off the A/C compressor.
B. 1948 Cadillac, the switches and controls for the A/C were on the rear parcel shelf behind the back seat.
C. 1937 Lincoln Zephyr, the A/C option cost $302 and was installed on only 460 Lincolns between 1937 and 1941.

They probably thought it was worth it. Who'd do that now. That would be quite a sales feature.

Amazing.

I'm glad they figured out a better way to turn it off than belt removal though lol.
