My first car had a bakelite steering wheel, ice cold in winter, diameter of about 20 mm, single speed heater with all the power of a fly's fart which delivered a whiff of tepid air to either the windscreen or the feet, but not both at the same time. Slippery plastic seats with coil springs poking through, holes in the bulkhead to let extra cold air in, wipers operated by exhaust pressure which almost stopped when the revs went down in top gear (third), 2 mm thick soundproofing carpet which almost reached to the doors (but not quite). The air conditioning was operated by winding down the windows and the only rearview mirror was interior and about the size of a Mars Bar. Heated steering wheels bah humbug.
Try a Healey 3000 in the winter when all you really have are your boiler suit (sealed at the neck) and a fart or two dependent on dinner !
The heating equivalent of VW's 6volt lighting
