School me on heaters

I have a 59 I'm working on. The PO removed many unnecessary things like windshield wipers, a proper fuel tank, rear brakes, and a heater. Or so I believe, I have no idea if one was even installed from the factory or if this was an option. I don't even understand the vents in the kick panel. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Heater/defroster optional thru 1966, there were two types, fresh air or recirculating.

1957/60's have fresh air vents operated by cables with ***** on them. 1959/60's use specific right/left cables, while 1957/58's are the same right/left.

As stated by, 99Hoss, look for Holes in the Firewall where the Heater should have been mounted.
What Number Dummy wrote.
The Louvers in the Kick Panels are the Fresh Air Vents for the Grill mounted in front of the Windscreen behind the back of the Hood.
They open & close w/ the Vent Pull Knobs mounted in the Dash, one on either side of the Steering Wheel.

thanks for all the respones. I saw where the holes should be but haven't been punched open which leads me to believe there never was a heater/heater core installed on my truck. That would make sense originally being an Arizona truck.

Now to the air vents, do they bring in air from the engine compartment? How does one get warmth if not?

The fresh air comes from the base of the windshield. You only get warmth on hot days. You get cold on cold days.
