Any idea what went here? 1966 Ambassador

We just acquired a 1966 Ambassador. Mostly original. Any idea what went here? The empty space at the top. It's in the "kitchen" next to the sliding doors above the counter.

In our '66 Safari, there's a similar panel above the fridge. 110 volt outlet, water pump switch, and a 12 volt outlet (to receive a plug that would fit a car's cigarette lighter or 12v power outlet in newer vehicles).

Yours looks about the same, except for the white square above the 12v outlet. Is that velcro, or is it a cutout where something was once mounted in the wall?

It definitely looks like a cutout with a couple of screw holes or screws on either side. The surrounding wood has not been bleached through exposure to light, so whatever was mounted there extended considerably beyond the cutout.

So, do I have any idea what it could have been? No

Yes - it's a cut out. The white is the back wall of the cabinet behind the wood paneling.

You have a shadow. That is all. Nothing missing. There is a Tv antenna plug below too?

I think 62overlander has the answer. There's an old TV cable behind the panel that's not attached to anything. The hole most likely had some sort of plug to plug the antenna into a TV.

Interestingly, there's a rats nest of wires behind the panel. One is marked "AC" but ends cut off with the wires exposed! Clearly electrical codes have changed since 1966!
