Hey Stevie, that's definitely not something standard, and would have been added by the previous owner. I'm assuming it's the foot switch for high beams and low beams on your headlights similar to many American cars from the 1950s and earlier. The location is strange though, does not seem to be easy to press with your foot.

Hope that helps,

David.

Hey Stevie,
Yes, that's the highbeam switch for sure.
It's a Delco D803.
Used on just about every American car and pick-up for decades.  Seen them in '40s cars and into the '90s.
Sold hundreds of them when i was in the parts business and still remember the number. There's a few variations of mounting and pig tails, but D803 was the industry standard. Got to agree with Dave on the mounting. Mine is on a "L" bracket above and to the left of yours. Works great. Just used it less than a hour ago coming home from a car show.

Edit: Ooops.... Forgot to mention that's a Delco part number.
