Armstrong Thermostat

I'm looking for an Armstrong thermostat. My daughter has a 72 Tradewind. We finally got the old AC working after replacing the bad control circutry, however some previous owner replaced the original thermostat with a honeywell that dosent have the two speed fan option.
Anybody got one?

Why would you want to?

The second speed isn't that critical. I replaced our 2 speed thermostat with one like you have because the original was wildly inaccurate at best. The modern thermostat shuts the whole unit down rather than just the compressor, when it reaches the set temp. When off, it's much quieter in the trailer, and we didn't miss "high fan" at all.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

I installed a switch inside a cabinet to switch fan speeds since my digital thermostat did not provide for 2 speeds. Crude, but it works
