PAL heater – the 1960s

The import of petrol-burning independent heaters for buses and Tatra 603s from the then “West” was unacceptable, both from the economical and ideological point of view. Therefore in 1958 the then Autobrzdy Jablonec nad Nisou national enterprise developed a domestic diesel-burning hot-air independent heater called 12 AKN 5 for buses and in 1962 the 3 COB 1 petrol-burning hot-air independent heater for the Tatra 603.


The first domestic independent heater for passenger cars, the 3COB 1 from Autobrzdy Jablonec.
