Can someone tell me how to operate the AC system in my 62 Buick Invicta? I just bought it and the seller says it works great, but she cant recall how to operate it, because she only used it a couple times. Crazy

Picture of one if it shows......

Hope that shows. Might not Need to know if this is a factory unit or aftermarket. Many aftermarkets and some originals could have been mounted under dash or on hump on floor. More genuine factory stuff should have real chrome knobs - perhaps a fake ivory,

Lettering might have faded but many were sunken into chrome and painted black.

Have some info on this dating to 1961 and being a rare option for most will be sketchy.

Don't get be upset if it doesn't work especially if not used to assertively kept operational. This would have used R-12 refrigerant and lots of it. Production ceased in 1993 but it's still around.

Where (not getting personal) are you or the car located? Do you have a history on this from new?

In the mean time do join a Buick Car Club. Other members are likely to have both parts and know how or better yet own one just like it!

If you can get some decent pictures of dash controls and the compressor close up it would really help us help you. Pictures can be a pill to post. Try loading to "Photobucket" or another and link them to here or sometimes will post directly.

Good luck,
