Plug In Vest Heats From Dashboard

April 1963…

Plug in vest heats from dashboard.

Riders in open cars, boats, tractors, or on motorcycles can now keep warm on cold days, says the inventor of this plug-in vest.

It has flexible heating elements enclosed in plastic front and back panels and it plugs into a cigarette-lighter receptacle connected to a 6, 12 or 24 volt battery.

Normally worn inside the jacket, the French device is demonstrated above on a cold day in London. When not in use the plug can be tucked in a pocket.
