'68 ambassador: furnace vent: how is it supposed to look

I am at a bit of a disadvantage, I don't know how the furnace works but for right now, I'd like to know how the vent is supposed to look

Check out the Vintage Airstream Photo Archives.
This is a great resource for checking out the features of the various models.
The photo looks more like a water heater access panel, or what is left of it, than a furnace vent. These are hinged at the bottom and held in place by a cam-loc at the top.
The Archives show the outside access panels you asked about in the other post. The doors for outside storage lockers were simple double sided panels wit a lip that fit in a groove at the top and there held in place at the bottom with a tumbler spade lock.

Hope this helps,

It looks like mine is missing the two hinged access doors shown on :

And it looks like my astrophysicist friends cut out a panel to get to tthe water heater just below the back reflector.

Are these access doors available? I can probably fabricate something if it comes right down to it.
