In a previous post someone had bought a heater motor cover or shield. Is this an aftermarket piece? When I bought the car the heater parts were in a cardboard box. It doesn't look like any thing covers the motor on the engine side of the firewall. Am I missing something and where can I find one?

I didn't see that post but they could be talking about the heater "delete" plate? That would
be a sheet metal piece that covers the hole in the fire wall where the heater motor would have
been in a car specialy ordered with out a heater. Factory race cars, cars destined for Puerto
Rico, and cars ordered by folks with perspiration issues all may have come that way. They are
very rare.

The previous poster may have been talking about a 69/70 cobrajet heater motor shield. 69 and 70 cobrajet cars came with a heater motor shield ( others may have had this also ) in the engine compartment that was for protecting the heater motor when installing the engine. The shield was supposed to be removed after engine installation, but many where not. I am not aware of any of the earlier cars having such a shield.
