I just cannot find any pictures of this heater anywhere! Does anybody here know anything about it. It says "Briggs Heater" on it. Could it be a branch off of "Briggs and Stratton"? Click the link to see the pictures. Thanks everybody.

It has the Vintage logo that was used by Briggs and Stratton. It is a aftermaket install for shure.

Good luck

I can't be sure but when we went to school in the 60's, we had the Econoline vans with a small heater near the rear wheel well. It was an auxiliary heater but I can't say for sure, but it looked similar to the one you show.

Looks an awful lot like the Hupp heaters, used in Peterbilt and Kw trucks from the late 50's thru the 60's

yes it's from a Briggs and Stratton division, an aftermarket addition to a truck that [like many] came from the factory without one

I have one that looks much like Belcasters. Mine has stamped in red letters on it JAN5 6412V. I beleive it is a model 356 heater made by Hupp in Cleveland,Ohio.The front cover on this one is chromed, I found it in a parts box in the 551st when I picked it up.

I have this Model 356 Heater brand new in the box, I got it from a Military Surplus Auction decades ago. The manufacturer's info on the box says the following;

MP - Mobile Products Division
HUPP, INC
1135 IVANHOE ROAD - Cleveland, Ohio 44110
One Of The White Consolidated Industries
WCI

----------------Blower
356 - 6V
----------------Heater


Here's photos of it;

Hope this answers your questions.

OH, and BTW, Hello Everyone! I'm new here, I live in Gold Hill, Oregon, and I love anything mechanical - Especially Chevy's. I have what I believe to be a 1936 Chevrolet Pickup, which I am going to restore.

Hope to be swapping ideas and information with you all.
