I have for sale an air conditioner taken out of a 1978 Super Beetle. I do not know anything about it, but would imagine the compressor needs rebuilt. It isn't locked up, so that's a plus. There is the plenum which goes under the hood(trunk), and the fan and condenser which goes under the front behind the bumper, the switches that go under the dash, and the compressor. I cut the hoses to remove it from the car. This might be great for parts, or good to rebuild.
