CAR AC HISTORY
For the first 50 years, cars were driven without air cooling. The first car was invented in 1886. But, vehicles with air conditioning were not developed until October 7, 1935.
In Buffalo, New York, the first automotive air conditioning was invented. Two brothers created it. Those two brothers were James and William Packard.
Two brothers, one day, decided that their car was too hot to drive where they lived. They had a thought. “What if we could build something to cool our car down in the summer?” And that’s precisely what they did. The 1940 Packard was the first car to have a fully functioning ac system.
James Packard and William Packard decided to have a little kick to their new automotive design. To have ac. Little did James and William know they would be changing automotive history forever.
The two-door sedan version of the 1940 Packard was sold for 1,135 dollars (in its time). The four-door 1940 Packard was sold for $ 1,170. The eight-passenger model was sold for $ 1,400. The ac cooled convertible was sold for $ 1,570.
The wise inventors of the first ac cooled car were James Ward Packard and his brother, William Dowd Packard. William died in 1909. James died in 1928.
