Sounds like you need one additional thing--a second opinion! The dash A/C was made by ACME, which is nolong in business [I think] but the parts they used seem to be pretty std for auto A/Cs. Depending on condition/what happened to the system, [usually a compressor failure or a hose leak] things like evap/dryer tanks and the expansion tube [not the tech name] are common replacements. If someone is saying "it all has to be replaced", I'd run.

Hello Jack:

I had the fittings replaced on the Compressor at A R Auto Air Specialist, 1409 W Holt Blvd, Ontario, CA 91762-3650, 909-988-8458. There prices are reasonable and do just about everything in the way of auto AC repair and installation. They also have a large inventory of AC parts.
