    Nice pic. anyone know what that device is hanging on the windshield frame? My guess, given the dia of the cable or hose going to it is a conversion valve for vacuum wipers. Anyone recognize it?

    That is a curious item … Given the caption, I’m leaning toward Tom’s idea. I think it could be a microphone.

    I’m now inclined to agree. Probably a mic speaker combo. I just figured we could see the radio seeing you can see most of the back seat. The other curiosity is that it appears both the choke and throttle cables are pulled out in use.
