Hi Vince
thankfully due the age of the vehicle we don't have to pay any tax or do vehicle inspections (MOT)

All the drawings I posted are from Ford service manuals.  The first one is for a 1970 Torino, and the second two images are for a 1972.  The second two photos are just schematics that show the air flow paths (this is not how they actually appear) but the 1970-71 systems operate the same way.
 
Good luck with your cowl repair.  Keep us posted.

heat in recirc, we call that Bake
 
Not that I am aware of, you only got recirculation mode for A/C cars and it was activated when the A/C was set to the coldest temperature settings on the slider.  But like you said, you set the door to keep it in recirculate full time.
 
See the diagrams below:
 
Heat only (note all the air intake is from outside):
 
 
A/C and Heat (note the air can be drawn from outside or inside the car):

It should work and other's have done it this way as long as it's driven in fair weather.  Just keep in mind your defroster will not be effective without fresh air.  I am not sure if that is require as part of the vehicle inspection over in the UK.


i forgot about the old cars that came heat only had manual vents on either side in the kick panels.

i guess i don't get any outside air? Ouch

All my old cars were non-A/C vehicles.  Those fresh air vents work pretty good on hot days when you have no air.  My Torinos vents move a ton of air.
 
Did you block off your fresh air intakes too when you did your cowl?  Looks like John did too (can't remember if he has A/C or not).
