This came with a 1927 Roadster Pickup I bought. Made by Casco Products of Bridgeport CT. ???

I think you should post a picture of this gadget Bill.

I would think it is a 1930s accessory.

This is probably the same company today:

Am I the only one who has ever sat in the front seat of his modern car for hours waiting for his wife to come out of the drugstore because she would be a "only a second" and needed a few things? This is always a perfect time to read the owners manual and fiddle with everything on the instrument panel.

Of course Casco is alive and well. They made/make the billions of pop out cigarette lighters that used to be in every instrument panel as standard equipment. Their name was stamped on the side of my lighter element last time I checked.

Tom, you've got one of them too?!
It never seizes to amaze me how long it takes for the SHMBO to "just run in and pick up something", and then half an hour, or more, later comes out with a cart full.
As for the windshield defroster device, my dad had one of those to peer through in our 1938 FIAT Balilla. It also had a thermosiphon (no waterpump) cooling system and no form of heat inside the car at all. When we went on a trip in the winter time, we were all seriously bundled up, plus wool blankets, and after a while our breath badly frosted up the windows. That little heated "porthole" to peer through was all that could give the driver a view of the great outdoors.
A lot of people complained about the lack of heat in the Beetles, but compared to the FIAT, it was Heaven when we got a brand new VW in 1953.
