Is there any way of keeping warm in a classic car with no heater?

My son bought his dream car, a Morris Traveller. He has no garage but can have it winter stored. His thoughts about this are the poor heater in the Moggy. As a result, he will need a "reliable" banger. Is there an alternative such as a mobile heater to quickly defrost and heat up a car?

There's good and bad news, I'm afraid. Yes, you can get portable car heaters - but they mostly run off a 12v 'cigarette lighter' socket. This is a fairly easy upgrade, though, if you choose to go that route. Alternatively, you can also invest in a jump starter pack (not a bad idea) with a 12v socket to run the heater.

I have a Mk4 Ford Cortina registered in 1978. When is it tax free and how do I go about getting it registered as tax free?
Does the 12v socket work when a car is not on or does it work when it's only on? I require a black box in my car and have to keep it plugged in for six months.
Can I use a battery conditioning charger (I think that’s the term) through a 12v socket in my car’s cabin? Obviously not one wired through the ignition switch.
