65 Coupe Heater Box Question

2355 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  scottwilk
I have a 65 Coupe 289 3 Speed Heater. I am replacing my Heater Box and like a dummy threw the old one out. I bought the incorrect one for a 64 1/2 and was told it is the same box just does not have a resistior hole? Does anyone have a picture or descrpition of what U am suppposed to have. The one I have is $100 less, so if it is an easy modify I will keep it. Thanks - Scott

The only difference between a 64 box and a 65, 66 box is the resistor.
The later models have a small cut out in the cabin side of the box for the resistor to fit in place.
The 64's had a 2 speed fan which requires no resistor.
You might be able to get the shop to swap the front cover plate as that is the only difference.

These came from Google images; I do not know the original posters.

Hope this helps

Thanks Joe

This was exactly what I was looking for. I can easily cut that hole in and move on. Thanks again - Scott
