Default Blower motor cage is visable?

I recently purchased a 69 vette. I replaced the heater blower motor and happened to look down through where the cowl vent intakes are, and I can see the fans cage. I'm asuming something is missing? I would have to think if it were raining it would blow water right insde the car. Any help is much apreciated.

On AC cars there's a door there that closes it off when on Max AC so the cabin air is recirculated.

I should have mentioned this is a non AC car.

That is the fresh air intake and the cage (when running) will pull in air from that opening. Nothing is missing.
