Well, has two wires - one that clearly had been snipped off, and the other goes into a conduit w/o any apparent exit. Must have had a purpose or perhaps an unfinished project. Just wondering what it might have used for ... kinda weird, never seen such a thing.

Honestly, it could have been for anything. There is really no telling for sure unless you back trace it as far as it goes. When you say conduit do you mean the split loom that protects wiring? If so, you can open that up and see where it goes.

Judging by the location, my guess is an aftermarket horn button. Back in the old days it wasn't uncommon to see such things.
Does your horn work when you press the stock horn button?

Good Luck, L.M.

Ah!!! That does make sense. It's a push type button (that releases when taking finger off), so something that would engage and disengage quickly like that is reasonable.

Yes, the stock horn button & horn itself works. It's possible a previous owner took out the after-market horn -- the wiring was neatly cut & doesn't get any current on either wires.
