All that means is that your 914 had/has AC installed. When installed, the dealers back in the day would cut the top of the console off and install a shorter 3 hole gauge panel which allowed room for the AC. Yours received the scattered 3 hole gauge panel version.

Here is a photo of my 73 914 with the dealer installed VPC system. My gauges are in the same location as yours.

If your LE no longer has AC, you'll need to find a used uncut console.

The 3rd type was the DPD AC console with the 3 gauges still stacked but with anew angled bezel. I don't have a pic of one handy, but you can Google for it if you want to see that type too.
