That's theoretically possible deputy, and the place I would start is to determine the belt configuration on a non-air conditioned model and judge how easily you could sub a belt. I'm curious as to the gain though, and why you feel you need to actually physically bypass the AC.

I have heard an old engine will last longer, not operating the air cconditioning compressor and that I'll get more power with it by-passed. I also prefer fresh air over what comes out of the unit.
