I think that attaches to a firewall under a dash and connects to a manifold heater.

that info helps. it came from a estate that had a 37 cord, 55 jag and a teens model T.  i dont  think this part belonged to one of them? 🤷🏻‍♂️

The Jag and the Cord would have had factory hot water heaters,your piece is Model T era but I think about all of the manifold heaters were aftermarket. A lot of the covers had AUTO-LITE cast into them. Your piece I would say is one of a deluxe variety with one of the higher price and quality systems.

Sage, thank you for directing me to the model T era on this part.  i never seen one like this before. made of heavy cast iron.

A bunch of Model A Fords had holes cut in the firewall for heater shutters like that. Great way to dump carbon monoxide into the cabin...

My 1930 Ford sedan delivery had one like this.

I could smell the hot oil but with all the fresh cold air coming in almost every where there was little carbon monoxide or heat.
