This is a picture from my 1972 FJ40. The red arrow is pointing to a missing part. What is the missing part and where can I purchase a new one?

Looks like you're missing the defrost hose. You can usually find them in the classifieds or on eBay. Double check the passenger side of the heater to ensure you have one on that side. Do you have plastic vents on your dash right next to the door? If so, you'll also need the an additional plastic hose that "T's" into the main defrost hose.

A an exorbitant price.
Vacuum cleaner hose has been used by others, I found some later-model FJ40 defroster hoses at a swap meet...cut them down to fit my FJ55. You have all summer to replace that. Look around.

78 was the first year of the side defrost vents in the US market.

Make sure you get a defrost hoses or hoses for a FJ40 model years 68 to 73. Before and after were different.

Napa has generic heater hose that works, you just cut it to length. It doesn't look as good as oem but was less than $10 for both sides. There is also a write up somewhere on here where someone made some from plumbing parts from Home Depot . They looked close to stock but heavier duty.

Bought these on eBay for my 71. Someone made them from flexible hose. Didn't need the clamp but I thought it would hold better
