Default South wind Fresh Aire controls year dash differences

I have this NOS southwind heater control setup and came in a bin of 1933 1934 parts. The heater is also new old stock but never seen one with a dashboard mount. Would this be for newer cars?

I have rebuilt a couple of Southwind heaters, and have quite a few NOS parts, but I have never seen lone of those. Have no idea what it goes to. Interesting though. I hope someone can answer your query.

Not sure off the top of my head. I'll check my literature and see if It gives this information.

Just do a google search for 'south wind heater' and you will find info. including pictures.

They were made starting in the 30's to the 60's and for many different applications and I believe for aircraft also.

Late 40's, early 50's?
