Did you mean you it wouldn't be transformed into a big chrome jewelry box?
Are you going for a stock restoration with manufacturer parts? If not, I'd say scrap the old a/c you can use much more modern, lighter, more efficient systems that are available in a bunch of cars and it will be much much cheaper. But that all depends on what you want to do with the car.
Yeah, meant wouldn't. I seem to do that alot, forgetting the suffix at times it's necessary The engine is still good and will be for a while, it's got 52500 original miles on it.
Anyway, yeah, we're going a stock resto, if something needs replaced, it gets replaced with a NOS, repo, or repro part. There are a few minor things that aren't stock in there (most of them due to the fact that getting the correct part is nearly impossible), but the main thing is the radio and speakers on the package tray since my mom had those replaced/installed while she had the car back in the 70's. We do have every part we've taken off of it in the garage, and even some spare parts from other years.
The problem with those modern units is they don't install using the same controls and vents of the factory setup, that won't work for us. All the factory style components of the system can be had though, so it's not so much a matter of difficulty getting them, as figuring out which ones need replaced since the a/c hasn't worked in 30 years.
