In the 70s they made swamp coolers for cars, mainly VW buses and bugs.

Swamp Cooler

Humidity is low here in the Central Oregon desert and swamp coolers work great. My house is off-grid solar powered so in order to save energy I modified the swamp cooler by installing a motor and controller out of a treadmill. The original induction motor had 3 speeds and was very inefficient but the treadmill motor is a variable speed perminent magnet 2 hp. and very efficient. It runs off my battery bank through a large inverter at 110 volts.
