There were experimental units in a few cars as far back as the early 30s from companies that tried to incorporate large and bulky repackaged commercial refrigeration units. Packard working with one of the commercial refrigeration companies was the first to offer a practical factory designed and installed air conditioning system that was small enough to be suitable for a regular production car in the 40 models.
