1970 442 Kick Panels

Can anyone post some pics of the correct side kick panels for a 1970 442 conv.?
I have seen some cars without any vents, and I looked at MarX740 pics and he has the vents with two pulls.
I am confused.

A/C cars had the vent. Non-A/C cars had the pulls to open ventilation flaps.

Just to clarify, the non-A/C cars use the kick panels with the separate plastic vents and the pull knobs. Note that cars with vent windows (4 door sedans and wagons) only got a single pull knob and did not get the upper vents.

The A/C cars use kick panels with no vents. There are no pull knobs. The passenger side kick panel does have a vac-operated inlet for the A/C recirculation function.

And I didn't know that about the vent windows.

I didn't either until I picked up a 72 sport coupe (post car) a few years ago. First time I had ever seen a 70-72 dash pad without any vents in it.

So, I should have 2 vent pulls on each side? Is there 2 separate vents on each side?
Thanks

Assuming your car does not have A/C, you should have the two knob configuration. One knob opens the (single) vent in the kick panel. The other knob opens the vent in the dash pad.

I need both kick panels with the vent grilles and cables with knobs.
I have nothing there now. Joe
