Fan switch,or the reostat is stuck at the blower motor, pull blower fuse to stop temperary untill you find the issue.

Fan switch on the back of the radiator, up top on the drivers side, has gone bad. Tough to get at, but a common failure.

I should also mention the vacuum actuated heater control valve at the back of the block on top, is also a common failure point due to old age. Another tough to get at item. Parts should be easily available. To the fan switch problem: the switch itself can be either a two lead harness connector or a 3 lead connector. Pull the connector off to find which switch to order. Most of the older 944's had a two lead connector. Hope you have skinny arms for this job. Good luck.
