I assume that is aftermarket indicator that someone installed the lens in upside down & backwards.
This is how the brake light looked in my 77 (Just under the tachometer)

None that I can think of. The molded text is legible. Whoever applied the BRAKE logo was high on something......

The lens is in upside down, backwards, wrongly? Pick your word. Can you flip it over? or leave it as a novelty.

You would think, but notice the numbers stamped on it? They’re not backwards/upside down

My theory is.....that is an aftermarket brake controller....intended to be viewed in a mirror, just re-purposed for under the dash.
