 The '666 Corvair? Is that the one Ralphie wrote about???
AC was available with a 140 in '66. As Bryan said the compressor mount is higher than on the 110 engines. I'd guess the reason AC wasn't available in '65 would have been because of the location of the condenser. '65 and earlier have the condenser sitting right on the fan, in '66 the condenser moved up to the engine compartment inlet vents. The earlier setup also has a lower air cleaner. These things probably wouldn't work with the extra 2 carbs.

Subject: <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.
