65 impala evaporator box

Hi! Iím thinking of restoring my original A/C on my 65 impala. My question is is there any other vehicle that uses the same evaporator box that fits on a 65 impala? Or any other impalas that use the same? Mine is broken in some places

The box is made of fiberglass and can be repaired if you have all of the parts (nothing missing leaving a gaping complex shaped hole).

Other than that all full size cars share the same A/C box. Four doors, Convertibles, Wagons, and Two doors are the same from the fire wall forward. As such any full size Chevy can be a parts donor. Additionally the same parts were used by Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick, and Cadillac (B and D body Caddys). If you can find a junk yard with cars this old in them (I found a bunch while driving through the Appalachia mountain states; especially in Western North Carolina and Northern Georgia) then you can probably find the part you need.

I've got an Evaporator Housing out of a '65 Caprice available.

I'll send you a PM.
