I have an awesome 244. Lots of money in it and I don't want to give it up. BUT...It does not have AC and I may be moving to FL. I don't think I can make it through a summer down there w/o AC. :(

Does anyone know roughly what cost I would be looking at to install and AC unit?

Thanks!

Welcome to Swedespeed, Angie.

Your '89 244 is a USA car without AC? - strange.

If the car currently has no AC components whatsoever it will take about $2000 minimum on your MC to do the the job first-rate.

Where are you located? Will the AC work be at your current location or in Florida?

It depends ;) . disclaimer: The following is all "ballpark" figures. I'm sure someone out there will say that they are way high, and someone else will say that they are way low.

I often say my car doesn't have AC, BUT it does have a button and all the equipment, it just needs servicing to bring it back to working order. Servicing an existing system can be anything from refilling it (cheap, maybe $100) to a full overhaul replacing many major components (expensive, maybe $1000). My grandmother's 1991 244 had the AC revived and replaced multiple (but not all) components to the tune of about $800.

If when you say you don't have AC, you mean the car has never had air conditioning, then that's a whole other ball of wax (really expensive, maybe more than $2000).

There are companies around that can air condition literally anything. One of them is Vintique and the other is Classic Air (or is it "Aire"?).
I think that a trunk unit would be the best way to go with a 12x series... only because I'm 6'4" and my knees bang against all of the air conditioned 122/4's that I've ever seen with the standard under dash units.
