That is not a stock MB bracket. Beyond that I have no idea.

Looks like a cruise control unit.

I thought the same thing, but I don't see a control for it. There is some obscure control mounted by the window and heated seat switches. Maybe that is it. Still not sure though.

I will do this tomorrow morning and let you know where it goes to... Never seen this before, but I am pretty sure that it is for the cruise control... We will see.

Definitely an AFTERMARKET cruise control.

I bet if you follow the cable coming out of it you find it hooked to throttle linkage somewhere. The two hoses are vacuum control lines.

You are right, it is for cruise control. I have a switch that is by the window switches(aftermarket) that must be the control for it. It's a two way switch, either "on" or "off".

You must have experience with after market '80' cruise control units. No one pulls that out of thin air.

That or you are old and had one.
