1976 Grand Prix Condenser
The Condenser on a factory air 1976 Pontiac Grand Prix is the radiator-like device mounted in front of the radiator in the engine compartment.
1976 was a split design year for Condensers in the Pontiac Grand Prix, although all were tube and fin style Condensers.
Early 76 models used a Condenser with a barbed hose connection on the top (discharge) Condenser fitting. We offer a direct replacement Condenser for this style. It’s our Part No. 11-611E.
The later 76’s had an O-ring connection on the top (discharge) Condenser fitting. Our direct replacement Part No. for the late 76 style is 11-611L.
We also offer reconditioning services for your original 1976 Pontiac Grand Prix Condenser. We can even make a new one using your original as a sample. Give us a call or email and let’s discuss the best options for your situation.

Car air conditioning is nothing more than continuous heat transfer by two heat exchangers. One heat exchanger, the Evaporator, absorbs heat from the passenger compartment. The other heat exchanger, the Condenser, dissipates that heat into the outside air. All other things being equal, size matters. A larger Evaporator and a larger Condenser exchange more heat than smaller ones and allow the air conditioning system to cool better.
CONDENSER MAINTENANCE TIP:
Try to keep your Condenser as clean and free of bugs and debris as possible. The Condenser's ability to transfer heat is based on air flow. When the Condenser air flow becomes obstructed, it becomes a less efficient heat exchanger.
