Looks like they take coolant from the engine, just like an OEM heater does.

getting a defrost function from them just takes a little work, you buy both the unit and the add on $40 piece, then you pick up some flex tubing to route those side vent openings up to your defroster

these units work nice for smaller cars ... 32's ... 34's ... but wouldnt realy suggest you bother if your rides a full size chevelle w/o any interior or insulation inorder to save weight .... wont realy put out that much heat

Problem, i ripped out the heating stuff by accident now need to replace some of it. I want to have the a/c block off plate for access for headers and for sparkplugs, well you can't do that without deleting a/c and heat..
So..
I think i might just run to a junkyard and pic up a new setup

I installed a similar unit in my '80 Trans Am. Mine was basically the same set-up, but came with the defrost. Comes with controls too, fans speed, and heat/defrost "mode" switch. I think the newer models of mine have some sort of temp control as well. I think I paid $170 for my Vintage air unit, while this Flex-a-lite Mojave unit is $150, plus and additional $40 for the defrost add-on. I was driving the car this winter with low 20 degree temps, and it kept me warm. I can track down some part #s, and email you a pic or two if you'd like.

Here is the link, just click on # 27.

It is more pricey than I remember, so maybe it is not as good as an option as I remember. Sorry. I am happy with mine though...
