My 73 has AC, which has co-opted the two dash eyeballs. However, the Moss diagrams shows four eyeballs, though not their locations. Where were the other two non-dash eyeball vents located?

Thank you.

Two in the dash, two under the dash, on either side.

My 74 was originally Air Conditioned.
The HVAC duct work was different than the illustration.
They used the "Y" piece for air hoses to the front corners of the dash eyeballs and to the windshield demister ducts...
The hole in the "heater box" for the demister hose was left open to the footwell
And the inside of the eyeballs for the AC were different than non-AC eyeballs. They had shutters.

Ken mine must be like yours. There are no eyeball vents under the dash.

Thanks for this post! I notice that I don't have air flow through the eyeballs for heat and wonder if the a/c has compromised this. The car has been in a desert climate for decades and maybe not driven during the winter, so maximizing a/c may have seemed like a good idea to someone. Something to check!



Used parts are negotiable; they look better on your car than in my shop.

Do you have a pic of the vents? (And of the AC system?)

I sold the car about 8 years ago Scott, but the hoses were connected as I described.
I do still have this picture which shows the A/C vent in the dash on the driver side.

Thanks- I have one aftermarket A/C setup I have not installed yet, and rather than the usual setups under the dash, it has a small control knob set, an evaporator plenum with fan, and then it ducts out through two of the eyeball vents- it replaces the originals with a pair of silver ones... I used to have a pic on my photobucket site, but they no longer do the third party host thing, so I can't put a pic up. I am still thinking of using them should I ever put the system in- but I plan to upgrade the whole thing... And that is where money comes in I don't have spare at the moment.
