I know, I know: it's silly to have an argument about this, but please help!

So once upon a time, I owned (and loved) a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle, a 3-speed semi-automatic. Had the thing for nigh on 14 years, and only sold it due to my leaving the country. This week, a relative and I got into a very mild argument over something we're unable to settle, and I therefore turn to you --- the all-knowing, all-seeing car people of AskMeta --- for the answer:
Smackdab in the middle of the dash, there was a red button? light? with a white capital 'B' in a white circle on it. When you pushed this button, it lit up, but (apparently) nothing else happened.... as far as I was concerned, the ONLY useful thing about it was entertaining small children. What the heck was that button for?!?
Many thanks, and we await The Truth About The Button.
