Heater Box Removal on 1970 Chevelle

I removed my heater and a/c on my chevelle. I now have open holes to my intake and water pump. I know they can't be open, but does a line/hose for anything else need to be run to them? As I live in southern Cali, I don't need either heat or a/c. I'm not looking to put them back in. This will be more of a show car. Any help would be appreciated.

You'll get a bunch of posts that swear you need a bypass hose from the back of the block to the water pump, but the reality is that the factory heater delete cars did NOT use any sort of hose. Just cap or plug the heater ports at the intake and water pump. You'll be fine.

It never rains in California...

Seriously, when I lived in SoCal, I used RainX on my car with out heat/defrost and it worked well enough for the little that I drove it.

The engine will cool a lot better if you connect a hose from the water pump to the back of the intake manifold
drivers side, by the distributor.
