Thats whats in cable speedo hondas. The service manual even states it as the vehicle speed sensor. Its technically made up of the speedo gear on the trans, the cable, and the sensor itself inside the cluster.

most of the ones with a cable the speedo is completely mechanical. This is the "sensor" inside of the one on an 86 Accord, the white plastic piece contains a simple reed switch, most early civics are the same setup





this is where the magnet is located, every time it passes the reed switch, a pulse is generated



most of these will have a white box inside of the cluster, this is what is actually inside of most of them lol



some have more circuitry to create a signal like an early VSS, but I wouldn't consider it a true VSS until they went to the standard of the transmission mounted sensor, with a 5 volt square wave output
