This is an aftermarket specialty item that was sold in the 30s & 40s to defrost windshields. This is a 6v item only. It's tested and it works. It's in the original box. The box is in remarkable condition considering it's ~80 years old. The item itself is also in remarkable condition. After obtaining this I did some investigating and every one I found is pretty much trash, well used. This one seems to be unused. I don't know the history of the item but it shows no wear at all to my eye. Prior to my testing, the contacts where the power cord attaches showed no scuffing or wear that would indicate the power cord had even been attached. Of course that's no longer the case since I had to attach the power cord to test it. The one odd thing is it has two power cords with it. I can only assume that somewhere in it's long life the previous owner had another unit that he used up and decided to keep that cord as a spare. One of the cords shows evidence on the connectors of having been used where the other cord shows no wear at all, a condition that fits with the overall condition of the unit. I would recommend not trying to actually use this unit since the rubber suction cups is old and brittle and likely won't seal against a windshield. This is probably a display item only. Check the images below and ask any questions you may have. Price is $60 OBO plus actual shipping. USPS is cheapest and it's just under $17 from here to the east coast. Whatever it calculates out to for your address is what the cost will be.
