I'm not sure what this is called but would love if anyone had any detailed information/pics of it. Image

Unfortunately there's still a number of components from Ecto-1, like the other props in the films, which haven't yet been identified. Probably the main reason this piece hasn't yet been ID'd is because it seems to be missing its casing.

There's only been a couple of times fans have had the opportunity to get access to the inside of Ecto-1 to photograph it, so those efforts have more broadly documented the car... At the expense of not recording some of the smaller details, like part serial numbers.

This is one of the other best reference images of the item in question:

Thanks for that... do you know if this part made it into the new restoration or did they go for a more 1A interior and leave it out?

The photo I posted is from the car after it was restored, so it's still in there. With the exception of a new sound system, TV screen, and I think new flooring in the rear half of the car, most of the electronic prop dressing from 1984 is still in place.

Cheers for the insight!
