71-72 Blazer Stock Non A/C Model Conversion to OEM A/C Feasibility?

I'm wanting to buy a 71-72 Blazer and want a manual tranny and a/c optioned truck but they are rare. How difficult is it to convert it to an OEM a/c version? Or is it easier to get a truck with a/c and auto tranny and convert the auto tranny truck to a manual tranny? Thoughts?

I think modifying the cutouts in the firewall and cutting holes in the dash for the vents is about all the Fab work required. The rest is just getting all the bolt on stuff and installing it. My blazer had factory ac but pretty much all of it was missing. After looking for parts I decided to go with a vintage air unit instead.

I put a new aftermarket a/c kit in my 70 C10. About 3 years ago. Easy install!

Vintage air offers all the factory looking vents, cleaner engine compartment and better a/c. Done quite a few of them
