Does anyone have a photo of a complete heating unit from the engine compartment of the 1967 Impala sedan? I dont believe mine is complete and want to compare IF anyone is able to provide.

Much appreciated.

By complete are you asking for the heater core, the blower motor and wiring including the controls as well as the fiberglass reinforced plastic box it mounts into: or do you need just the heater core itself?

Basically what I have is a box with nothing else sticking out. No coils or anything.

Ok that is not uncommon because if you do not change your anti-freeze every two years it turns acidic enough to eat at the tin in the solder joints that hold the heater core together. If you have aluminum heads and water pump or any other aluminum parts it needs to be changed annually or you will have the aluminum chemically welding itself to any ferrous metal parts it touches. Once they leak most used car owners simply remove the offending part and block off the heater hose by recirculating it into the water pump (as that is cheaper than actually buying a pipe plug to block off the water supply).

Luckily you can still buy a brand new replacement service parts here:

Without A/C you need this part;

If you have the factory A/C (vents will be in the dash and not hanging under the dash in a box) then you want this part;

If you also need the blower motor then here is a replacement for you:

You will have to go to a reproduction house like Classic Industries for the plastic squirrel cage fan and retaining clip if you do not have it.

If you need any other parts I source RockAuto and select the AC-Delco or Delco-Remy parts over the Chinese parts they also sell when offered.

What you have is the underhood box for an A/C car. It is only those two pieces. The evaporator coil fits inside of that. The heater core is located inside behind the glove compartment.

Thanks Michael. I thought I had a non A/C car originally. Id still appreciate an image of a complete unit for reference if anyone is able.

Don't know if this is detailed enough. It's a 65 with A/C. Should be the same. This was in the process of assembly so no compressor lines yet.
