I am looking for a cheap A/C left (driver's side) plastic duct for my 1976 C3 that goes under the steering column. New ones are around $95.00 and that's a lot. If you have one you want to sell, or know who has one please let me know. Thanks! Confused
 
('74 thru '77 all should be the same)

Hey Aaron,
Take a look at this;
C3 Parts For Sale/Wanted
"1975 Coupe Parts F/S"
It was posted by C3VR member cdb on May 17, 2008
 
I don't know if the duct is the same or different from '75 to '76.
Hopefully this is helpful.
 
Kevin

Thank you. I am going to All American Classics (Salvage yard in Vancouver) in the morning to check out a wrecked '74 they have to see if the duct work is still there. Still let me know what you might have.

Thanks, I don't think the '79 duct will work. As far as I know '74 thru '77 left A/C duct should be the same. '78 on up the dash is not the same and most likely the ducts would not fit my '76. I do thank you though!

Sorry I didn't get back to you last night. I went out and got the duct piece I have and took a photo of it. You can have the duct if you can use it. Not sure now what year it came from as I got it in a parts lot when I first started buying up things "I might need" LOL... Email me at vwhitehead@woh.rr.com with your mailing address if you can want this one. Here is the photo of the duct.

Well at All American Classics the two C3's they had in the yard were pretty much stripped to nothing. So my search goes on.
 
fedexbicman76, Is the duct about 12 inches long? Here are some pics from a couple of catalogs.
 
 
 
The one you have looks real close to the one I am looking for.

Sorry Aaron, my bad for not taggin this part when I put it away. I did some research in the GM Parts Manual and found that this piece is correct for 1978 - 1982. It's gotta tag on it now and I wont waste anyone elses time with false hopes. Good luck in your search.

Luke, I just looked at that one and according to the parts list manual that duct is almost Identical to the one for 76. The only difference looks to be the small round vent that would be on the under side of the duct. Not a bad thing at all since it would provide some cooling for the feet and lower legs. I say it would work. Just my two cents...

I think I need to stick to the '74 to '77 left duct when I find one. On the rectangular end (it's not a true rectangle shape) is kinda shaped funny with the upper side narrowed on the end with the round end angled up to fit the dash outlet vent. As seen in this pic.

I understand your concern Aaron. I would at least ask the guy on ebay for another photo showing that end of the duct which goes on to the Dash outlet vent. According to the parts manual numbers the one he has listed is good through 1974 and the only change showing in the manual is that round vent on the bottom. But, ultimately it is your choice and it isn't like you have to make a purchase today for one. Good luck on this one...

I called Jim and left a message, he called back in less than 20 minutes. He will look through what he has and get back to me. He tells me he might become a C3VR vendor to save us all some money on parts. Thanks for letting me know about him. Everyone else should write his number down.Big%20smile
