far what I see might be the best option which still will require some fabrication with brackets for mounting Etc. Would be to go with an aftermarket installation. If you go to Vintage air.com and look at the Builder series you can customize your own system which works out good for custom build cars trucks Etc. You may have to fabricate your own mounting bracket and then figure out the drive pulley for the compressor. Summit Racing also offers some air conditioning kits from the same company. I would check this out and figure out a best kit that will suit your needs keeping in mind that some modification and Fabrication will be needed as with any custom install.
