I'll take a stab and say it's a plug for a level sensor?

if it is not connected to anything, I would say it is for an option that was not fitted.
I have noticed several plugs that are not used on mine.
I would guess someting like factory installed fog lamps.

Mine was joke, no such things as Halogen fluid


don't worry about the connector, there are tons on my '83 that go NOWHERE. It has no power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, air pump anything, so it has tons of extra wire connectors. The whole motor on mine can be removed with a total of 10wires. That's it.

If it has never gone to anything, don't worry about it. If your curious stick a multimeter in either port and ground while the motors running and see what kinda voltage their is on it
