That was the problem with those air coolers, just not enough heat when it got cold, back then they made a gasoline fired heater that was plumbed into the heater system, my Dad had one put in his square back back in 1968. So these days I doubt if you can still find any of those around. What in my last bug is bought a small electric heater that I put on the car at night on low that kept in inside warm enough to keep the ice off the windows and then I used one of the 12 volt electric defroster guns if the Windows started fogging while driving. Those are defently not a cold weather vehicle especially if it drops down into single digit temps. HTH
