Very nice.... but I may have certain reason to think so.

Work in progress: If you do any more to it, you will need to go to Pebble and enter it.

BTW: What are those tires....looks like Mich.

Wish I knew who in AZ ownes this Valeo T Cabriolet up for sale: It's a stunner.

The Valeo would be a very nice car to own.

My 1988 Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet

Year: 1988
Engine: 3.2 cabriolet
Color: Rosso Corsa
Miles: 21k
Place: Virginia

Sold my 911 and picked up my first Ferrari!
Love the car, trying to restore the car to its glory days! And the project begins!
So far, expansion tank hose busted -got new hose and new coolant done, had to adjust the hand brakes, one side of the top latch broke off, order new part and works as new, AC needs to be converted to R134a from R12. Both seatbelts were stuck, had to take it apart and fix the pull mechanism. Both rear windows are stuck on the down position, it worked 2 days ago. I tested the switch, its fine, will start digging to get to the motor and assembly, have to check the ground as well. Improvements: Painted the brake calipers red and changed the shift knob to a chrome ball, new K&N air filter, installed FS shields. Besides that, the car is in wonderful condition and sounds and drives like a Ferrari.

Nice looking Mondial, Soucorp.

I'd stick w/R 12 in A/C. R134 does not offer same cooling as R12 with older equip. You would find decreased cooling with R134.

Very pretty car and really cute daughter.

Greg is correct on the R12. It is more available and cheaper than in the past and a much more efficient refrigerant than R134.

If one examines an evaporator and condenser for the R134 systems they are nearly 2X's the physical size of those used for R12.

The R12 is much more efficient and a bit absurd to limit it due to "climate" conditions.

There are still millions of cars in the world w/R12.

Stick w/R12 as Terry reconfirms.

Thanks and I would stick with R12, but in Virginia, I dont think its legal anymore, so Im kinda force to convert. Since its fall now, AC is not needed, which gives me more time to research the topic for Summer 2012.

all the best!

R12 is not illegal. It's use and distribution has been limited to those who are licensed A/C repair persons, and the price is kept very high as a discouragement.

You can find shops in the area w/R12 but be prepared to pay about $30 - $40/pound.

I used to buy R12 for $0.69/1 pound can!

Greg- Affirmative. We used to do our own filling with really cheap R12 and probably let quite a bit get into the atmosphere with relatively crude equipment. I still have my set of manifolds. Now the shops are required to have systems that have virtually no losses while filling and evacuating and also recover and recycle the R12 that was in the system. Only certified shops are allowed to perform R12 service, but there are thousands of those.

All domestic production of R12 stopped on 1 January 1996, but huge stockpiles were accumulated by shop owners and the new recycling equipment is extending the life of of the stockpiles. As fewer and fewer cars using R12 remain, prices have actually leveled out.

You should be able to find an A/C shop in your area that will service the car. You might consider updating the car with a variable orifice valve (VOV) that will help maintain refrigerant quality in your car.

You'd be amazed how much R12 is available in Southern Calif that comes in from Mexico! Apparently it is still being made there!

You can find it for a few dollars a can in places!

Thanks Greg, I was told that it was no longer avail in VA, but let me call some shops.
Thanks for the advice, I'll keep R12 if I can do it, not that worried about $40 a pound cost, still reasonable!

That's the thing to do.

Wait a month or two when it's cooler there and the A/C shops will do the work for less $!
