Default 1965 Mustang Coupe defogger

I need to install a rear window defogger for my 1965 coupe. I see that there are a lot of 12V heater/blowers that I can install on top against the rear window. Is this the best way to go or maybe get a duct and heater blower from another car ( which car? ) and install it. I don't like the electrical glue on elements. Please let me know if you have done something like this.

You really don't have any choice but to go with an electric system, as there is no place in a '65 coupe body to run ducting back there.

Goodafternoon

Their is a unit that fits on the package shelf, drivers side, very rare. will get a pic of the unit with a ford box and part number, I picked up a used unit at a swapmeet the spring. will take some pic's and send along. It will be next week. Also in 67 their is a unit that sits in the center of the shelf, not easy to install as the speaker holes are diff on the 65/66. Both take air from the interiour on one side and blow on the glass on the other side.

Which unit is that? Is it new?
I imagine that you can get a blower and duct from almost any car and install it. No? Isn't the blower heating up and creating warm air as well?

US Made 180 Watt 12 Volt Auto Portable Auxiliary Heater

What do you guys think about the above link?
It looks like I can just put it in the back against the window and wire it.

That seems like the most practical and least intrusive solution, and likely the most inexpensive. You can always pop it in the glove box when you're not using it.

When you've gotten it installed and have had a chance to test it, let us know how well it worked.
