They often were removed at some point. It will be on one of the two heater hoses between the firewall and the water pump. If it is functional it will have a vacuum pod attached that controls the valve.

But since you don't have A/C it is possible that you don't have a control valve. On my A/C car the valve was only used to turn off the water to the heater when I had the A/C on 'max'. If it was on any other setting the valve was 'open' and would allow water into the heater core. Unlike most, if not all, of today's cars, the Mustang AC would pass the air over the evaporator and depending on where you had the 'mix' set it would bypass some/all over the heater core to warm it back up some.

Modern cars do this by cycling the compressor.

I have also seen the whole hose with valve installed, but can't remember where.

Hit the "search" button and enter '18495'.

Doh! I thought you were trying to find it on the car. I thought to myself, how hard can it be? But then I figured you might be looking INSIDE for it.

According to the 71-72 Assembly Manual, without AC, it did not have one. Page E2Z-605-2, DATED 8/11/71. Chuck

If it doesn't have a valve dose it matter how the hoses are connected?

No. It will work in either direction.
