That is a popular accessory heater from the late 30s. In those days cars did not come with built in heaters. If you wanted one you bought it as an accessory and had it installed after you bought the car. Some bought them from the car dealer, but most were bought from garages.

I have some old MoToR magazines, the American garage trade magazine, from the 30s. In 1937 and 38 it seems like half the ads were for heaters. Then in the 40s more and more cars offered built in heating defrosting and ventilation systems built in at the factory. Nash's Weather Eye was the first.

So, that heater might have been installed in any car of the late 30s or early 40s that did not come with a heater.
