I have a 1989 dodge colt that I drive everyday. I love it. I recently moved to Arizona, and came to the conclusion that I need air conditioning. I believe there was an option for it when the car came out, and it appears the stock control panel even has an option for it. I was just curious on what you guys think would be the best way to go about add it. I would prefer the cheapest option. Thanks!

I was thinking about that, too. You'll need the lines and assorted periphery. Most people throw out their A/C when swapping in a 4G63. Maybe someone has these parts left in their garage or basement. You should and need to do an R134 retrofit. As described here:

So... you think it could be just plug and chug, along with the conversation. I have a feeling it might not be that simple sense it never came with ac factory installed. I was thinking about getting a universal kit from ebay like the one linked below.

That could indeed be cheaper and less tiresome than hunting down every single part of an A/C system that's 25-30 years old. But I recon you'll run into issues with the high pressure piping here.
