As I mentioned several years ago I have the carcass (rusted VERY badly!) of
a very early production 1965 sport sedan (has/had just about every
available option on it PLUS it has an installed gas heater in the trunk and A/C).
It is a very professional looking installation. Sold by a Chevy dealer in
Memphis,TN. I got the car AFTER someone had taken the original engine out of
it. I would guess that the car was ordered by the dealer to be his floor
sample as an intro to the new body style.

For the most part only the 1960 Corvair cars came with the gas heater; the
direct air heater became the standard heater in 1961 with the option to
delete it and, for a short while anyway, the option to add a gas heater. It
appears that it was very rare for anybody to actually order a gas heater
option after 1960. Although you could still technically put a gas heater in
1962-3 cars, it was not a factory option past 1961 (as evidenced by the
removal of hood insulation after 1961).
Air Conditioning was first offered as an option in 1961. The factory
never offered the option of both A/C and gas heater.
