Vintage Air creates old-school heater with Art Deco styling

The new system incorporates classic design with modern materials and convenience


An attractive Art Deco-style cabin heater has been introduced by Vintage Air, incorporating classic design with modern materials.  Called the Streamline Heater, the new product is designed to complement the interiors of 1930s vehicles, classic or custom.

“The Streamline Heater is Vintage Air’s most powerful and handsome heater system designed with classic styling to match the designs of the Streamline Era of the 1930s to minimize negative visual impact while providing unparalleled cabin heating power and efficiency,” the company says in a news release.


While Vintage Air is best-known for its wide range of AC systems for vintage and custom vehicles, the Streamline Heater expands its mission of providing comfort items for pre-war collector cars.

The heater is easy to install, the release says, and “designed to sit discretely below the dash and add heat to a hot rod or classic.” As with all Vintage Air parts, the heater is US made and comes with all parts needed for installation.

“The Streamline Heater’s Art Deco-style molded plastic cover, polished stainless-steel trim and single-knob operation ensure safety and ease of use,” the company adds. “Powder-coated louvers direct air out of the bottom of the heater and separate it between the driver and passenger footwells for even heating.

“The single control knob regulates both the three-speed blower fan and the electronically controlled heater control valve while the high efficiency copper and brass CuproBraze heater core ensures consistent, reliable heat on cold winter days.”
