I use to have a 93 Geo Metro with auto and ac and I loved it. I would love to own an electric Metro but here in Florida AC is a must have option. Is this possible?
Being 67 I would have to buy one already ready to roll or nearly so. I am very familiar with electronics etc but have no welding ability and sadly not much muscle power. Idid restore and still own a VW karmann ghia, but want to keep that stock.
A white AC equipped Geo Metro wold be prefect for Florida if affordable.
Does such a beast exist? I do not commute, I would only need it for local running around.
Thanks for reading this,
Ken

For most bang for the buck I would start with a donor car that already has air conditioning. Therefore, the only challenge is (a) obtaining an electric compressor or (b) installing a mechanical compressor that is to be driven by an electric motor.

At this time it's probably cheaper and saner to implement option (b)
