Not too sure exactly what it is but that silver thing that says TDK on it appears to be a tuner of some description, so I'd say it's a radio.

By the way: it looks like it has quite a bit of stainless steel in it, if you wanted to dismantle it and scrap metal it you might get a few dollars for it.

I reckon it is a car phone receiver/transceiver as the TDK branded device has tx and rx on it meaning transmit and receive.

Its a car phone box. looks like your car at some stage had a uniden analogue car phone installed. one of the retro cool ones with the curly cord.

Back when using a car phone was a thing or awe, not a legal issue costing points and money.
