72 Chevelle Wire undetermined

Hey Guys-
I was cleaning up the wiring under the dash on my chevelle and discovered a white wire with a spring at the end of it. It also has a stopper at the end of the wire to stop the spring from being removed. I am rather confused on what this is.
Does anyone know what I am talking about?

Sounds like the end of a fuse holder, old round style.

I agree that it sounds like half of a fuse holder.

My '75 GMC has at least three of these holders in the engine compartment (two for the ammeter shunt and one for the high speed HVAC blower relay), but I've never noticed one under the dash. GM used them to fuse accessories that were not convenient to connect into the main fuse box. However, yours may be left over from an accessory the owner added.
