Default 1946-48 hot air heater question

This thread is to seek information on hot air heaters factory installed in cars and trucks AFTER 1940 models. Hoping an owner of such will share pictures and specific information on certain parts in the system as installed.

Thanks in advance

To the best of my knowledge, most of the heaters were dealer installed options. I'm unsure how exactly to distinguish those from factory original equipment. It would be helpful to understand what specific info or certain parts you are wishing to better understand.

Are the attached images of components for 1942-48 hot air heaters?
The shroud on the left is for 1940 hot air heaters, but the one on the right (shorter and with a recessed area for fan clearance)and is the one I hope to identify.
The diverter assembly is also different from 1940 in that it has 90 degree bends etc.0F92497C-078F-40EA-8D14-AE2914D2320F.jpg

Don't know that I've seen a hot air heater on a 46-48 (I had misread your post). I'll just watch and learn from others.

I did not know they were using hot air that late as well. Interesting.

The V-8 Club's '41-48 book indicated that hot air heaters were used up to 1946. Probably darn few cars were ordered with the hot air heater when you had the choice, so they are probably quite rare.

The shroud on the right is for a 1941 passenger car with a hot air heater......

OK. I wonder if the 42 and 46 radiators are the same width? Thanks for the information 40Larry.

Ol' Henry, who hasn't been active here for a while, has a '46 with that heater in it. Find him in the Member's roster and PM him. He was always very helpful.
