where in the truck was it mounted?

I still think it is a brake light switch. The wire connectors are not stock and that leads me to believe that it is a substitute switch for the original factory switch. I'm not sure enough to place a bet on it though.

262 I6 (not the original motor)
It's not mounted, just dangling there

oh... so it's dangling on the interior? i thought you were just holding it there to show it. lol i would tend to agree with jjjk then. either like a door light switch, brake light switch, or a clutch safety switch.

does the white center plunger push in (spring loaded) ?
if so, some kind of switch, instead of a sensor.

Can't be a clutch safety switches, they had no such sissy switches on those old trucks. Its obviously a plunger style switch, so I would say it has to be a brake light switch. Would mount under the dash, above the brake pedal. If all works correctly, your brake lights should be on when the plunger isn't pushed in.

i know they didn't put them in older vehicles... but... since it looks like an addon, i had thought that for some reason or another it may have been added. just a thought. i would lean towards the brake light switch as well knowing the positioning of where it was hanging.

On those old vehicles, everything looks like an add on,lol. Without being thereto see, it could be something else, heck even some redneck starter switch or horn button.

No, that thing doesn't compress, and if it does it's jammed
