<VV> 140 engines and A/C

In a recent post concerning the '66 Corsa vert that sold for 18K, someone 
stated it's a nice car but it isn't a turbo and doesn't have A/C.

This got me to wondering if the 140 engine offered A/C in '666 or if it ever 
was an option on the 140.  From the A/C units I've seen, the compressor sits 
right were the secondary carb would be on the right side.  If they did offer 
A/C on the 140, where was the compressor mounted?

I know the 65 Corsa I have was loaded with options by the original owner, 
but he couldn't get it with A/C on the 140, I don't know about the turbo. 
Living in Alabama, it didn't his wife long to convince him to get another 
car and give the Corvair to their son.
