The term "Stovebolt Engine" is slang terminology, (likely derogatory in nature), so a wide berth can be expected as to what truly constitutes a stovebolt engine.
To me, a stovebolt fastener is flat on top and takes a flat blade screwdriver.
What was the last Chevrolet engine which actually had stovebolts on them?

"Stovebolts are only the 216, 235, and 261"

In addition to what Tiny posted, here is a little more information about The Stovebolt Six - The Cast Iron Wonder [1954advance-design.com] 1929-1953 (or, 1929-1963, depending on your definition) [1954advance-design.com].

I mentioned the engine since the hoses on the 235 and 261 are different. The 261 has a bypass hose.

Didn't mean to create a fuss.

Late to the party, but Brad's first photo shows the hoses routed thru thin air to the engine instead of over to the inner fender and held in place by the double clamp in the grooves in the inner fender. The clamp is shown Here [flickr.com]. It's the thing that's kind of bird shaped (wings).
[on edit]Hmmm. Looked at the accessory manual listed and they don't show the hoses routed over to the inner fender. ohwell
I would think that would be a better routing to keep the hoses away from most of the engine, but apparently Chevy didn't think it was necessary. I wonder why they put those grooves there (and the double hose clamp).

This picture [flickr.com]is of the type of heater that was in my first 1950 Chevy pickup. You would call that a Recirculating heater, right? No control valve and no fresh air vent.
