Did the rear window defroster option ever really work with much efficiency?
Was this a factory option ever or a dealer installed only?
And for what years and models was it available?

Seen one in a 69 I would assume it did ok since it's closer to the engine?

Wasn't the GM installation a defogger versus being a defroster?

It's a blower motor that recirculates ambient interior air. The control switch bracket is the same bracket is the same as the power top switch.

I installed an aftermarket defroster in my mother's '70 Nova.
It was a copy of the original option and was similar to the one for the Corvair.
It recycled air from the package shelf. It worked fairly well if you had the front defroster on high!

My '69 had the option from the factory.

It's a little like the speed warning indicator option, a slightly useful, but strangely interesting option. The original-car guys go all mushy about both.
