Is this a stock bracket under my 68 cowl? After I took it off it looked like the sheet metal was cut up with a pair of dull snips. I'll try to get a pic of the mess underneath tomorrow.

Looks like it may have been "trimmed to fit" at the assembly line. Installer made room for the reinforcement rib in the cowl panel and access for the cowl screw in that spot.

Maybe some one else will submit their knowledge......

That is the recirc air damper used in cars with A/C. When you put the controls on MAX that damper closes and the one in the kick panel opens to recirc air inside the car. There is a vacuum line that comes thru a hole in the cowl and connects to the heater control panel to supply vacuum to the damper operator to close it.

It looks like it was cut with tin snips because it was done by GM on their side of the assembly plant after Fischer finished the body.

certainly didn't have anything like that on my '68 NON-AC car.
