Does anyone have a heater on their car? I have most of the pieces for an in car heater that attaches to the exhaust pipe and pipes heat into the car. I need to see a picture or something to show me how it all fits. -I have a basic idea but am not sure how it attaches to the car I know it slides over the exhaust pipe between the muffler and the manifold -but how does the other pipes fit to deliver the heat
A picture would be great. Thanks

Re: Heater

Hi Ken.....

Check out the thread "Torid Heat" a little further down on the forum page.

I have a similar set up on my Model 70, but it is put away for the winter. Wait till the thaw and I can get some pictures!

Re: Heater

I saw that but their must be something missing--I cant see how this one would work The funnel type thing would not just hook up over the comlete flex hose and the exhaust pipe at the same time --figure ir needs a branch going off to gather the air from the fan. I would like to see a pic of it installed and working .
Thanks Frank

Re: Heater


I have an exhaust heater in my Model R Hupp opera coupe, it is the type that hooks up directly to the exaust with a "cut-out". A portion of the exhaust is directed through the heater with flex pipes and a leaver hooks up to the cut-out valve to control the exaust flow...Would this be the type of heater that you have?

Re: Heater

Ken,, now that I have all the parts to my Torrid Heat heater I will try to put together a "pict-o-gram" that may help you out. Missing from this picture is the 3' tube
