What is it (under-dash)?

I know the second pic is the backup lamp switch...

What is the round silver thing in center of the first pic?
(Sorry, the pic is sideways- the fuse panel(removed) & speedo cable are lower right in pic)
It has wires going to it and it is mounted above the steering column...
It appears to have something to do with the clutch...

It is on a 69...

No, CLUTCH safety switch. Neutral safety switch only allows starting in neutral on all trans types, and/or park on an automatic. Clutch safety switch allows starting in gear, when clutch pedal is pushed down to the floor, in, or out of gear.

Well I bought a 69 Z28 brand new in 69 and donít remember it having one.

But then again there are lots of things I donít remember from 1969.

Its a goofy switch with a small rod on it with a crazy small clip. I have seen a bunch. 67 and 68 did not have them.

Re: What is it (under-dash)?

OK... FWIW, I finally found it in the AIM p.173
It is listed as a "Switch ASM-Clutch Operated (UPC 6)".
