63 Corvair rear seat heat outlets
Posted by: ace63 ()

I am trying to find rear seat heat outlets for my 63 convertible. The carpet is covering the opening now. Would like to have heat on cool evenings.
Is this just a manually opened door or is there a grill covering it?
Thanks for the help.

They just flip up to open at the bottom, there is no grill on the inside.

They are metal. Late models have one plastic vent in the middle (over the almost hump). You can feel the hole they fit in through the carpet usually. Not the first time I've seen carpet over the heater vent holes.

Here is a picture from California Corvairs of what the early vents look like.

Thanks for the info.
Now I have to find a set. Seems like they must rust out due to where they are located. Some guys just let the carpet cover the opening. I like to keep the car as original as is possible. I did see the one at California Corvairs, but they were not in stock. Did find one but I thought $50.00 was a bit steep for just one.

Todays crazy prices are tomorrows bargains.

$50 for NOS I can see. Especially since that would save time sandblasting and painting the used ones.winking smiley

I had to buy the under seat ductwork and the vents for my car and the ranch had everything I needed.
