Rear Heater?

Post by Jeremy Wynn on Thu Jul 10, 2014 3:51 pm

Just Bought 69 g10, it has the normal front heat but also has a rear heat setup that doesn't really look factory unless it was dealer installed??? Anyone have an idea if rear heat was an option? I have not had time to take any pictures yet but will soon.

I guess someone was cold and put it in, might be pretty nice in the cold weather, I just need to make sure the box is good and everything put together good so no crazy leaks happen

I have 2 rear heater setups for the Fords. I've seen them in an A100 also. Ford had a gas and also a hot water auxiliary heater. Both mine are the hot water style. The extra flat spot on front of the dog house is where the rear heat switch was located.

Yup...my 67 Econoline van had the the rear heat as well. Hot water style. And that FINALLY explains the extra hole in the dog house...lol.
