    I am not familiar with that part on any C body 1973 and earlier at least. I would wager it is a key in ignition buzzer as well, but for a later model, perhaps a formal.

    The switch that is on that shifter is for the reverse lights on a 68 and maybe 69 model. By 70 the reverse light switch was routed through the neutral start switch.

    and according to your post back on page 22 of your thread, you have a 1970 model transmission, which is good. because there are some internal parts that are specific for 1970 in order to get the reverse lights to work properly

    Amazing work.
    Looked at your mystery switch, I don't have one as far as I know. I don't know what the factory cruise uses to sense braking, maybe a switch like that. If it doesn't have any Mopar stampings then it's most likely from an after market cruise.

    dose have Chrysler markins but Graham had a boo and believe is aftermarket...may have also been dropped in somewhere and is a wayward part from another type of car...Shure someone woulda recognized this switch by now if it was a Fury part...
