    My 73 Newport parts car has rear heat which I thought was cool and figured Ill put it in my 300 since I have it. But I was surprised that it was a close loop system utilizing a heat exchanger on the drivers side exhaust pipe. I have seen this before. I can't imagine it was very popular. Does anybody out there have any knowledge of how long this was available?

    Was the car that came from rear heat and A/C? Or just heat? Was it factory? Or an aftermarket part? I've seen one car with rear heat in the scrapyard. I think it was a '72. I remember it being y'd off the normal heater hoses and two long lengths of hose. Maybe even hard piped in the middle?

    What you have is not a factory system. Photo layout of factory rear heat system is attached. Click on Mail 0011 not the icon.

    It must be an aftermarket set up. I will have it out in the near future. I will post some updated pics.
    I just realized this would require a circulation pump. Maybe that is part of the rear unit.
