Default Gmc v-6 a/c

A bit ago I was reading the list of GMC for sale on Hemmings.com I found a 1965 for sale with a V-6 with A/C, I've attached the pictures.

This give us another option, without a OEM factory bracket AND power steering.

I've called the auction company to see if they will take better pictures and send them, but it look like a simple rear brace and a over the counter front brace?

I know it isn't that simple, but we may give us another option for those with power steering, I cant use the bracket that we made by another BB member.

Let me know what ya think.

OK I just spoke with the auction company and they confirmed this is a vintage air setup, its not listed as a "kit" but the brackets are bought individual, you need a tensioner (as shown) I'm sending an email to VA to see if they can identify the brackets as shown. The owner bought the truck with the A/C setup.
