Just wondering what the purpose of this piece is? It wiggles a little bit, looks like a cover for something. Thanks for you input!

Looks like a cover for the AC vent that goes there

Cars with no AC had a block off cover, that looks like the 86 and newer bezel can't say I've seen what style of block off cover they used. The earlier ones had this style

That cover almost looks like the 78-80 Chevy RH side non AC block off cover

Interesting! This is an 87 without ac, so this makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the replies everyone!

It's the block off that the factory used when a car was ordered or built without A/C. If you pop it out, very, very gently, you should find nothing behind it except the tunnel in the dash substructure where the cold air feed tube would have been located.

If it is wiggly or rattles, a plain old rubber band can be wrapped around it a time or two to take up the slack.
