MG TD TF 1500 - 55 TF Heater
|My car has none and I'm curious as to where one was mounted and what it looks like. How hard the originals hard to find? PJ|
|They never came wuth one new Paul. Most common after market were Smiths and Arnolt. I have an Arnolt.
|I found mine on feebay. Restored by Ben Cordsen in Ft Collins Colorado. It will keep the frost off your right toes.|
See these web stes for more info.
|Seeing how they didn't come with one from the factory, would a dealer installed American made heater of that period be correct? I have an American heater dated 1954.I believe it's a York.|
Here's what appears to be a great alternative:- http://www.flex-a-lite.com/auto/html/mojave-heater.html

|We have a Bosch heater, with 3 speed fan. Dealer installed in Germany.
|Gordon, At $240.00 the Mojave heater seems like an ideal set up. 12,000 btu and small in size. Might be a little to modern looking though. PJ|
|I use a 'Harrison' heater...an american heater from a pickup truck...probably early 50s late 40s....|
|Gordon, I like the speaker set-up you have in your car.Is it possible to hear the radio with the top down? I have two speakers under the dash but facing the floor. Sound is almost impossible to hear and I am wondering if it is worth the touble to remount them. Maybe it is just my 79 year old ears!|
|No...they had to be 3 1/2" to fit in those cases...and although the shop told me how great they were, the sound was just 'ok'...At speed you couldn't hear anything. I now have my iphone plugged into a little powered speaker and it is just about the same....|
|Arnolt heaters were a common dealer add-on in the 50's. I know of one installed in a 1950 TD at the New York opening show. Bud|
