Wanted to Buy - Underseat Heater to Fit 1946 Super Sedanette 56S

Hi Everyone.

Does anyone have or know where I can get an underseat heater to fit my car (left hand drive)? The car is only fitted with a windshield defroster but has provision for the underseat heater and I would like to fit one while the car is apart. I would like the heater in good working order if possible. Shipping would be to New Zealand.

Failing that, could someone tell me if the heater from other models fit my car?

Thanks in advance.

Dean.

I had a look in the shop manual for 1948 Buick's and believe the photo below shows the type of underseat heater I'm looking for. It appears to have a separate heater/radiator and blower/fan. I am looking for both parts.

Cheers.

Dean,

I have the complete under seat unit as shown in your picture. It includes the housing (top & bottom) , heater core, fan/motor and thermostat control. All parts are in nice condition. The fan motor runs OK but I do not know for certain if the heater core is leak-free. I'll be happy to take pictures of everything if you are interested. Hope this helps.

Dean,

Here are some pictures of the underseat heater unit:

I think I have everything you need to install a complete unit. Do you have a BLOWER switch already installed in the center dash panel?

If not, I can probably come up with that as well. The heater core looks to be in very nice condition with no visible damage. This stuff will probably be pretty heavy when all packed up securely, so shipping cost may be $$$$. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.

Thank you Pete for your efforts and responses. Mike has been able to provide most of the parts necessary for me to install the heating system.

Regards.

Dean.
