perhaps its a kill switch - or used to be. I have one on mine, you need to have that hidden switch in the 'ON' position to start my car.

Nitrous? Very Happy
Ejection seat? Twisted Evil

No, seriously it could be back up lights or off road lights that are not there anymore.
Fuel pump maybe?
Interior light?
I don't think it's original.
If it's got a high enough amp rating it could be a battery disconnect, but that's unlikely.
Try it, but I wouldn't set in the seats while I did it. Laughing Laughing

If its a square rocker style switch (usually on the left side of the column underneath), it was for the rear window defroster.
