Any ideas

While I was doing my alternator modification today, which was successful by the way, I noticed a Grey wire coming off the starter motor solenoid and going into the bulk head by the heater motor. It has an inline fuse holder but no fuse in it so obviously what ever it is it's not connected, any ideas guys. Thanks.

Sounds like a power tap where they are drawing power from the battery by way of the battery cable to the starter. Not a factory wire, so most likely a power wire for an eight track or cassette tape player from the seventies or eighties if I had to guess.
