This is the heater box portion that mounts in the engine compartment on the firewall.

We cleaned it up and found this date code stamped on it.  This appears to be when the heater box was pulled for assembly.  It is dated Feb. 6, 1963.

This would appear to be the manufacture date code of the housing.  It is dated Jan. 31, 1963

These are the wiper arm pivots.  We cleaned them up and painted the upper portion of them as they we installed before blackout was sprayed in the cowl.
