Foot vents

Okay, here's an odd request.

I need a set of vents for the kick panels. What I need are a set of vents with the pull cables to open them. I seem to remember some cars and/or trucks from my youth that had vents by you feet that you operated by pulling a knob on a cable. That is what I need. I can adapt them to my car if I can source the vents.

Anybody got any ideas?

Late 2nd gen ('76 - '81, possibly earlier as well) Firebirds and Camaros without A/C have these kinds of vents. 2 on each side - one incorporated into the kick panel (large, rounded rectangle shape), and a smaller one up in the cowl area (probably 4" x 6").

My '79 Chevy Truck (again, without A/C) has something similar.

probably a lot more '70's - '80's cars that didn't have A/C had 'em as well (or at least the non "luxury" styles).

Any GM car from the 1960s to the 1980s without A/C had the vents. It's tough to find a non-A/C car from the 70s or 80s, however, but that was an available option.
