    Opens the fresh air intake flap of the blower box mounted under the hood to allow fresh air in.

    V for "Vent"

    I believe there is a vent between the hood and the windshield that opens when you pull that knob.

    On my '68, it controls the door on the air intake to the heater from the vent on the firewall above the passenger's feet.

    V knob

    Thanks to you all....I'll go ahead and track it down to the heater vent door. It is stuck, so I'll start there and see if I can un-stuck it.

    IFRC that knob on my 69fj40 would open the rain and dust acumulator in front of the windsheild on the cowl when pushed in and close it when pulled out.

    don't know about a 71
