I have a rectangular hole cut in the metal above where the rearview mirror mounts on the windshield. It's a jagged cut approx 1 1/2 X 3 inches. I can't find any interior pics of a 1955 chevy step side pickup that show that area. I read somebody's post that they had a speaker up there. I suppose it could have been anything a po wanted to put there but was anything factory or most popular in the day?
PS it's a series 2.

Cruising in the Passing Lane
the factory radio mounted a speaker up there for 55-59 .... see the accessory manual here ... the speaker enclosure is available repro - here's one place

Thanks guys. I have been wondering/concerned/stressing about this off and on for the last week or so. Knew I should have asked but seemed like I should be able to find the answer.
Thanks again.
