All,

I've got an old 4x4 chevy frame/engine/transmission that has no body to it.

I want to use this in the winter. the radiator is rear located. The cab and original heater is long gone. I want to fit a small blower fan and heater core for some warmth.

I plan on heading to the junkyard/boneyard/auto-recycler tomorrow.

Does anyone have recommendations as to what type of car I should look for? I am hoping for a compact type single unit.

Thanks in advance,

D.

I had a 1991 Ford (Full Size) Van with a separate "rear" heater. That might be be something to look for.

Combines used to have floor mounted fan/heater combos. Gleaners had one about 8 inches square. Others were similar.

Exactly. The rear heater from a school bus is a self contained unit. Heater core and electric fan all in one unit.

You stated that the radiator is rear located. Can you explain that a little better.

A rear located radiator with a fan on it would be the king of all heaters.

All of the older Toyota's had a heater above the driveshaft hump, that was held in by 4 screws..I am talking mid to late 70's...also if you need a fuel tank....the mid to late 70's Toyota Corolla had the tank behind the rear seat....4 screws on that too..and always in mint shape..about 12 gallons...

I picked one up last fall. Went to a salvage yard, that I have visited for about 23 years. Told the owner what I was looking for, and he said to go look in a bunch of the old delivery trucks, that had come from a local potato chip company. The trucks look like UPS trucks.

They had aftermarket, 2 speed heaters added, right next to the drivers seat. The added switch was on the dash. 4 screws, 2 hose clamps, and the unit was out of the truck. I think other companies, useing the same type of truck, may well have added these heaters also. --- John

older toyota pickups had a one piece unit type heater core blower that would work for what your wanting. can be removed by taking out four bolts, undoing the two hoses, a control cable and one electrical connection.

Look for a rear heater from a Chevy Suburban. They were made to sit on the floor in the back and have a fan mounted on the back side. Size guess, 15"X8"X9" tall. coolant connections come out the bottom

If you can find one, a cab over White Freighter, under the drivers seat. They had two blower motors and it was the only heater that really worked in the darn things.
