Correct.  Today, of course, it is much easier to add A/C to a 140 as several 
people have made special high mounts for modern Sanden compressors.

Here is a link to the photos of my son's 1965 Monza 140 in which I installed 

It is essentially a 1966 style installation, except it uses a Sanden 
compressor and new 1966-style condenser - both supplied by Rusty Rose ( 
http://www.rustysonline.com/) and uses R134a
