~60's 190c Intake/Exhaust System

My roommate has an old 190c, I think it's a '63 or so. Today I helped her change a headlight and check some other things and while I was poking around the air filter I noticed the strange tube sticking out of the filter. I'm just wondering, what is thing, exactly? The picture below isn't of her car (just one I found online) but it looks pretty much the same, except her car has a flexible hose connecting the exhaust manifold to the black tube and what looks like a little wastegate thingy.

I did some googling but couldn't figure out what this thing is or does. Can anyone enlighten me?

Edit: Forgot to post the image.

Welcome. It's nice that your roommate has a Fintail. You have drawn a circle around the snoot of the air cleaner housing. The air filter is inside the big black can and the snoot is just a passageway for fresh air to enter the air filter housing. I very much like your markup on the picture.

Garage
The missing hose collects heated air for winter warmup. there is a lever on the side of the air cleaner snout that will lock or unlock this warm air duct for winter or summer.

that ooaga horn is not stock, neither is that red faucet knob and plumbing.
