Oh yeah. It did. Also as a dealer option was a 45 RPM record player. Yes a 12 - volt record player.

wow! what a car! why do you care about AC? that engine was not meant to be a "cruiser"- I would think that anyone who ordered that engine back then would not care squat about getting AC with it- or having an automatic, for that matter- the question should be- "was any one ever assembled with AC?" my guess: no

If this was the L-88 or track preprepared car, the answer is NO. If the car has vent controls, it was not ordered with A/C. If there are no vent controls, is has had A/C. Someone may of raced it or wanted the 15 more HP the compressor took, and removed it.

FOR YRS I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT ANY SOLID LIFTER CHEVY ENGINE IN THE 60S COULD NOT HAVE A/C! THE OTHER DAY A GUY TOLD ME HE ORDERED A 69 VETTE 435 HP W/ AC AND TURBO 400 TRANS . HE ALSO SAID THAT HIS WAS ONLY 1 OF 4 MADE LIKE THAT ! HE SAID HE HAD THE DOCS WHEN HE SOLD IT FOR 82gs !! HE SOUNDED BELIEVABLE !!!

It was not the solid lifter engine that prevented the A/C from being placed in the cars, it was the fact the solid lifters was a power built engine and the A/C took away usable HP. The LT-1 small block Corvettes came with A/C and the engine was a solid lifter.
