After doing some research I think someone must have put an Ecco light under my dome. Glad I asked because I ignorantly assumed it was original, because...why would someone swap it out? Well apparently someone did huh

the cotton threads have rotted out. standard problem. now if it is good and the head liner not torn up a curved needle and some dental floss will put if back in. it would look like they did not have a light on the car originally. not unusual as a number of combo were not use for ambulance duty the double hole one for the wire one for the bolt was not factory. factory would have run the power lead threw a hollow bolt.

it would look something like this. this is one a made up for my 72. it has a factory set up on it now. the light would ground threw the shaft so that when you tighten up the wind nut you complacent the circuit
