Default Washer system and brakes

Hi all. Attached is a photo of engine bay and what I believe is some sort of vacuum assist brake system. My tbird has a air con (removed for maintenence) but I'm not quite sure what this is as the manual shows 2 other brake systems. I replaced the brake M/C and wheel cylinders and bled the brakes but they still feel spongy. I will bleed them a couple of more times as per other posts.

So what is it?

Other question is that the tbird didn't come with any windscreen washer system. I was lucky enough to buy a red washer bag and vacuum pump and switch off a member (thanks Rick). But I'm not sure where it should go. All photos that I have seen are right where this brake assist thing is. Also the left panel where the switch should have been installed has no hole. i.e. I don't think it ever had a washer system in place. Would this be true?

Bonus question. I added data plate photo. Anyone see a discrepency in 3rd photo. I think I know this answer. I'll post my answer in a day or so.
