Air conditioning for a Franklin fender 90

I need help with this.
Me and my friend are building a Def 90 with a bulkhead from a Series 2.
The idea I wanted to go with was have all the simi modern stuff the def 90 has but wanted a vintage interior..
Need help in figuring out to get air conditioning to fit in..
Thanks..

Yes good idea Dave.
I have seen these and they work well... sort of like the old IIA Military Ambulance heaters only for AC or could be done up for heat and AC.

He did just finish one but its a convertible with no ac..
I think he's keeping that one for himself too..
I purchased a Series II from him a few years ago that he spent about a year on doing his "thing" too..
Just love it, but its all stock, so not much freeway driving advised unfortunately, and adding the ac is not going to happen.
So the reason we are starting this new project..

don't believe him..he always says he is going to keep one for himself but never does.. Someone inevitably will come by and make him an offer he can't refuse... he will keep driving his station wagon..
