Never seen one,,and still learning flatheads.
Its a crankcase air breather, from a 1935-36 ford....Ed
Good God Man Do Some Dusting Around Your House!!! Just Kidding
Idea is that it caught air from fan and road draft to give some propulsion to the ventilation system introduced in 1935...this is the "in" of the system, out is via a hole in a little lump by the pan.

So like an early PCV ???
I customized one to work with my PCV system. I think they look cool. (this was a mock up...the vacuum pick will be moved to the plenum)
Cool item !
