Profile America — Saturday, November 29th. One of the comforts most Americans take for granted while driving was displayed for the first time this month in 1939 at the 40th Automobile Show in Chicago. The Packard Motor Car Company unveiled the first U.S. car with air-conditioning. The cooling and heating equipment in the Packard was located behind the rear seat in the trunk. Treated air reached the passenger compartment through ducts mounted between the seats and the rear window. Air-conditioning did not become a widely available, affordable option until well after World War II. Starting in 1969, the majority of new cars and trucks made in the U.S. have been equipped with air-conditioning. While Packard is long gone, the remaining manufacturers produce almost $109 billion worth of automobiles annually.
