What is amp pull for?

I have a 79 cobra and a question about a nob under the dash. There is a nob on the right side under the dash that says "amp pull." Can anyone tell me what it is for? I can really tell if it is doing anything when I pull it. I have seen it on other '79s so I think it is factory, but I haven't been able to find out what is for.

It is to turn the dash-mounted amplifier on and off. The amplifier was part of the "Premium Sound System" option. See the cluster of holes in the top-center of the dash pad? There is an amplifier under there, or at least there was from the factory.

Cool, I've always wondered what that was for. I've got one in my 83 too.
Thanks for the info.
