Re: What am I missing?
The non-A/C cars used cables to control both the heat door, and mode door. There should be two of them running through the steering column support on the firewall from the control head on the left, to the heater box in the center of the dash.
The fresh air lever should be mounted to the bottom of the dash with a rod going into the heater box. If your heater box was missing, then that probably was too.
As far as the dash vents, there should be a rubber seal on the firewall that seals to the hood to keep the cowl vent on the hood separate from the engine bay. In theory those dash vents should be blowing in high pressure outside air from the cowl area. It shouldn't be hot engine air. That is in theory...
My Scamp was a non-A/C vehicle from the factory that had dealer installed air when I purchased it. They sealed those two holes with plastic covers when they installed the A/C. I've since pulled all the A/C off, but left the vents blocked. It didn't work, due to a stray rock going through the condenser, and you just can't get parts for dealer air...
