Kick panel vents - one or two?
 
I noticed in my right-hand drive 67, non A/C, that there is a vent in the right kick panel, but none the left side.

Was "passenger" side vent optional, or is this just another oddity in a factory RHD truck?

It has had some rather dodgy repairs on that side, so there's a chance it's covered over, but I don't think so.

Looks to me like some P.O. had rust problems on the left side vent and plated over it. I would suspect that there's a ton of rust lurking behind it. The cowl vent drains are most likely plugged up and causing crud/water to hasten the corrosion.

You can check the rest of the truck out in the link in my sig line. "Rust problems" are putting it nicely ;)

It should have a vent there, covered up by the dodgy repair.
