Default Any AC solutions for an original 914?

My nephew is considering one, but living in California's San Joaquin Valley means AC is a requirement. Anything available?

there are some very nice kits for aftermarket 914 ac that use r 134,. Yes. However if you have a nice 914 do not do it as it requires cutting way too many holes in the car and it will destroy the value. If a mediocre car then so what, will take about two days to do a decent installation, cost of the kit is about 2000 dollars, just like the original it is an under dash unit but now with a radial compressor

Also by the time you buy and install the ac in a 914 you have almost spent enough money to buy a Porsche Boxster!

DON'T put AC in a 914 period... either just don't get one or drive it on cooler days or at night. It tears up the car and won't work that well anyway. Also, you really want to "starve" a type IV engine, or make it overheat??? I've got 2 914's in Scottsdale- I just don't drive them in the really hot times...
