The firewall box for A/C is basically the same rough dimensions as the regular heater-only box, but slightly changed, to accomodate the two cores inside, instead of just one. Here are a couple pics from the internet, that I saved:

The dash vents are different on the A/C cars. There are extra vents in the box, down by your feet, as well as the vents on the dash pop up, to allow you to aim the air at you/passengers. There is also an oil-pressure operated fresh air door, which is fitted in place of the manual operated door, inside the dash. You can't interchange any of the panels under the dash. Here are a couple pics, of the A/C unit I salvaged, for use in my restoration.

I knew a guy who restored the AC of a 1957 Imperial and he told me "i would stay away to make this thing work in a non AC car do to the complexity of it" and money was not an issue for him...
