Default Air conditioning a Mahindra?

I recently bought a mahindra classic and was considering fixing an air conditioner. Has anyone already done this, is it advisable and how much will it cost?

Contact the admin - GTO. He has an airconditioning unit in his classic. I think it was a unit from the tata sierra.

Get the SuperKing AC and dont forget to get an uprated radiator.
Electrical fan is good for the condener and the radiator too.

the engine needs to be really healthy for that else..you will have perennial problems..such as overheating / radiator blowing..etc .. An electric fan in addition to the normal fanbelt driven one may help in some cases..but the key is in selecting a good compressor which progressively loads the engine..
