OK, what I did in our 63 GT was to remove the propane furnace, paint the old grill/cover with hammered-copper and turned it into a pantry for canned goods, etc. The old propane furnaces can be dangerous.

For heat we have a heat pump on the AC that is good down to 40 and below that we use a Mr. Buddy that heats up the unit is a very short amount of time.
