Usually, the two levers on each side of the handbrake were used for heating and defrosting the vehicle. It was before the conventional knobs on the dash were placed for easier use.

The levers basicly opened a flapper between the engine compartment under the back seat on each side is the flapper.

They are both to heat: the lever on the left makes the air from the engine (heated) enter in the car, the other one conveis the heated air in the anterior part of the inside of the car
