You should be able to run your fan with the heater set on cold. All my cars work that way. But I just drive with the windows open.

That's called 460 air condition LOL.

There is a company,called classic auto air that has ac retro kits for older cars. I think they go from $1200-$1500.

I just read an article about a guy who had hair dryer fans for fresh air to the cockpit. It was in a Camaro but it shouldn't make much difference. Maybe something like that in the fresh air ducts. I haven't driven my '68 in the hot weather yet (got it at the end of last year) I guess I can look forward to the same thing.

try an auto parts store for those little 12volt fans (wire them up to a toggle switch), or fans that plug into the cigarette lighter, they work pretty good around here, and it does get hot every once in awhile. Good luck.
