Default ARVIN heater for Model A ???

Need help identifying this ARVIN heater.

It looks like it fit the "A" Muffler but want to be sure.

Could only find a picture of a GOPHER HEATER in the Accessories book on page 133 that looks like this one.

Who can give me the answer.

Thanks

Great find!

If no one else steps up, you may wish to consider getting in touch with Preserving Arvin as they may have more info on your great little heater.

I worked for Arvin for 20 years and we did make several style heaters for the model a ford. I have been putting an article together on products that was made by them. Could I get some more information on the above heater from you?

I have never seen anything like that, not that heaters of any kind were used on Model As over here as far as I know. That one looks like it might solve my problem of the carburetor icing up. Down draught, not original!
Very interesting.
