Identity of early Cadillac heater

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what year Cadillac started using an exhaust heater to warm the inside of the car? I have a 13-1/2 inch by 9-1/4 inch cadmium plated grill, with two outside operational doors for airflow, and it appears that it would get bolted to a front or rear floorboard. 2-inch flexible exhaust pipes are attached. There is an oval emblem in the center of the grill plate that reads "Made for Cadillac, pat. appl. for"

Thanks in advance

Russell,

Thanks for the reply. Sorry I am so late in getting back to you, needed a little vacation time. I have taken a couple of photos today and hopefully this will help.

Last week I was told that this could be for the early teen models. The gentleman that I was talking to remembers the Cadillac that his grandfather had, and he was guessing 1914 or 15. I don't know when they went to hot water heaters.

Let me know.

Thanks again.
