I would hang on to it for some wall art or sell it for like $20 to $40 to someone else for whatever they wanted to do with it. JMO

|willowbilly3||You have to remember that heaters were optional back then. Even a "factory" one might have been dealer installed.|

I found this in a 51 Chevy truck. It's not an electric heater. It has coolant lines going too and from. It looks like it has a two-speed fan control and a knob to control the defrost.
I went out and took a closer look at it to see if I can find a model number or anything that could identify it. To my surprise, I did find one word..."Ford". This might explain why I've had issues finding it on the web.
I just found one on the web. It said it's from a 46-48 Ford and they wanted $300 for it. I seriously doubt it is really worth that. It is good condition. I think it could be hooked up and put right to work.

|willowbilly3||A plain jane one like that, $20-$40 probably. If you get one that's more art deco or fancier, they will go higher.|

They should put those electric heaters back into mini-vans.
That way the soccer moms could toast some eggos or pop-tarts while they're applying their make-up and chatting on the cell-phone.

I wouldn't "restore" it-any value would be as an original survivor, IMHO.

Let's move this to General Rodding Tech.
