Did a 66 with a/c use a heater hose shutoff valve? I cant find any pictures showing one.

The comfortron models had what looked like a shut-off valve on the passengers side inner fender. This wasn't a shut-off valve, but just a temperature operated vacuum switch. These were sometimes incorrectly called a heater valve.

Hi Whitetail

Quoting from the service manual

"Since the unit has no water valve, circulation keeps the core hot at all times. Air passing through the core receives maximum heat from the core."

The four season system and the Comfortron system.

"The temperature knob through its Bowden cable, actuates the door which controls outlet temperature. Since the heater core in this system is hot at all times, this door shuts off the heat when not wanted as well as mixing the hot and cold air.

Comfortron system

The thermal vacuum valve has no control over the circulation of hot water.

The dealer installed custom system runs entirely independent of the heater.

Looking at the heater box and that door. I thought the valve was not needed. But i had one from all the parts I have collected. Thanks for the confirmation.
