I picked up a cathedral style heater on Ebay. Since may car never had a heater I was wondering "where" it would have been mounted. I'm happy it's not the firewall type, tube's pass through the floor. It wont be till spring before I investigate the floor, this will be a good winter project rebuilding the heater. Any info on the color and the mounting would, of course, be appreciated.
Re: 31 heater
The heater for the Pontiac in 1931 was a manifold heater. It had a firewall mounted fan connected to a vent in the inside passenger side with a flapper door to close when it was not in use. I believe the cathedral type heater you have was a Chevrolet unit, maybe others as well. What you have is not original, but at least it will provide heat and that can be a very good thing.

Re: 31 heater
Thanks Steve, The heater has a brass tag that say's GM, no vehicle. It's a small heater (kinda cute), that may fit over the trans, being a wood floor, shouldn't be a problem. This car didn't have a manifold heater either so anything to clear foggy window's will be an improvement. My car is a work in progress.
