Auto heat - installed in '76 turbo?

Quick question - I have the the heat sensor up at the rear view mirror on the windshield (hanging loose from the cable mind!) but I do not have the auto heat mechanism/box between the seats on my '76 911 turbo - just the hand throttle and single red lever for manually controlling the heat. Given that the heat sensor is still hanging up at the mirror, I am assuming that the auto heat system must have been fitted in the car originally but removed at some point. The heat flaps were in good condition when I did a refurb of them leading me to believe they were also replaced as well at point - there was also no sign of the heat sensor in either of these that is needed for the auto heat.

Can anyone confirm whether this auto heat system was for sure installed in this year? The car was a UK delivered car, so would have had RoW options I - not sure if this was something that might differ with US cars....??

If it should be there then I will look at putting it back....

Thanks...

My 1975 delivered Carrera 3.0 also has autoheat, so I am guessing it is stock.

Auto heat was standard on 930s starting with the 1975 Turbos.

My Canadian delivery 76 930 also has auto heat. One heat lever comes with the early auto heat whereas the newer auto heat cars had no lever.

if it had manual heat, it should have 2 heat levers.

Backdate and install the nice early heat levers, ditch the over engineered autoheat nonsense and sell it if it works because it's ridiculously expensive new.

Then you can install a boost regulator valve in the autoheat box with the boost knob where the autoheat knob was.
Puts the boost knob where your right hand can easily reach it while driving.

..just another crazy thought.

Thanks Jim!......but its already backdated to a single lever (as per unclebillys detail) so I'm gonna fit me some over engineered auto heat nonsense and return it to standard....!! How's that for crazy?! But that's the kinda thing we do over here in Ireland....!
