Where could I find a good original heater and accessories for a 35 roadster?

I get great advice and parts from Michael Driskell at Third Gen Automotive. He'll know which way to steer you. www.thirdgenauto.com for contact info.

And, you really need to call Michael, he likes the personal touch and the other methods don't work that well.

Ford did not make a specific heater for their early cars. Hot water heaters and gasoline heaters were made by several aftermarket companies. Look up car heater on the Barn "search this thread "or ebay and take your pick. Buy the 35-36 Ford book from the V8 club. Regards, Kevin,

In 1959, I was able to buy a '36 flatback tudor sedan that was very original with 39,xxx originals miles. That car had a "Hot Air" heater that I had always believed to be original from the factory. Back then I wasn't the "enthusiast" I am now so I didn't pay a lot of attention to the heater, but the way it was integrated into the exhaust system always led me to believe it came from Ford.

Tubman, Yes you are correct ,there were a couple of Ford or dealer fitted hot air heaters that worked off the exhaust pipe or the engine exhaust manifold and supplied to Ford by other makers. These are pretty rare in any sort of condition today. They are very dangerous as well with the risk of exhaust gasses directed into the interior of the car. I would not use one of those today. An aftermarket hot water heater would be the best option and quite a few of these types around today. Regards, Kevin.
