A picture would really help us help you.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

That is like the question that Frodo asked Golom: "What do I have in my pocket?"

Bilbo, not Frodo, and it is "What have I got in my pocket?"

You are correct. It is late at night for me.

If you have a convertible: I suspect that is part of the convertible cylinder assembly that holds the top in place as you latch it to the window frame. The spring supplies the pressure to hold the top up once you let go of the switch that activates the pump.

I never worked on a convertible other than my '61 Corvair; and it had a manual top (no pump no cylinders).

Does not look like a part from 1964.
