It's my understanding that the valve is present primarily because some owners in the 1970s complained about an excess of cockpit heat when the heater was set to the OFF position.  You may find it desirable to replace the valve with a suitably sized piece of pipe or tubing so that the arrangement replicates the system used in the earlier cars.  Others have done this, apparently without ill results.
