Ford Mustang AC condensers are placed behind the front bumper so that moving air will cool the freon. After liquification in your car's expansion valve, your A/C transmits the cold air into the interior of your Mustang.
High Quality, Direct Replacement Mustang AC Condenser
The A/C condenser in your Mustang sits behind the front bumper in front of the radiator so that the coolest possible air can pass through it, cooling the freon in your air conditioning system. Unfortunately, this puts it in a very vulnerable position. If you were in a front end collision while driving your Mustang, more than likely you will need to replace your A/C condenser. Fortunately, LRS has the direct replacement condenser you need for your Fox body Mustang.
How Does an A/C Condenser Work?
First you take freon gas and place it in a sealed system. The freon is then pressurized using a compressor. As it's pressurized, it gets hot by absorbing the heat around it. This hot gas is then circulated through the A/C condenser, which is simply a series of tubes that dissipate the heat by allowing cool air to flow around them. The freon gas can lose lots of heat (get cold) when you reduce the pressure, then as it cools it becomes a liquid.
I was a little disappointed to see that it was made in China but it did fit perfectly and is working great! My stang had a recent 134a retrofit but a rock had taken out the condenser,after installing latemodel 's,and a quick evacuate and recharge it is blowing cold again!
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Found it cheaper somewhere else but did not want to risk buying from someone I was not comfortable with handling my order. I buy all my parts from your company. Never any problems or shipping issues. Thanks.
I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
