You talking about the Chromed Tube on the top of the front fender of the 68?
 
Everybody knows that's the turn signal indicator

Looks like some sort of a fresh air blower. . .   I would never draw air from an engine compartment

Amen Steve!  That's why I never liked the fresh-air system in the Cordoba; it drew the air from under the hood.  It was constantly hot!  Same goes for my Dakota.
 
I did notice the motor and saw the tubing at the back of it.  I thought maybe he was trying to cool the front brakes.  But that picture of the car's interior - hideous! 
 
I've always found the ventilation system on early Chryslers very adequate.  My Challenger did not have AC, and I drove it for 48,000 miles in two years while visiting Frances before we were married.  That's driving many miles in the Central California Valley in the summer.  The same goes for my Newport, although I do appreciate that car's AC!  I don't know why someone would want to add such an ugly set-up if the only reason was to blow air into the car.  And hot air at that!

Not only that, but I was thinking of exhaust leaks.  We all know how big block manifolds tend to loosen up.
 
They got lax on the fresh air vents because people didn't use them and more and more cars had air in them.  Now, try to find a car without A/C

...Well your all wrong   It's actually a factory vacuum cleaner...it doesn't blow air, it sucks it.  The black tube holds the debris that gets sucked up

That's really strange. My Newport had the same thing when I bought it. It was aftermarket.  I removed it from the car.
