The connector may be a previous owner's attempt to retrofit a pump from a 
Type 43, or even a Mercedes (or other car with Vac locks) - they may have 
scavenged the connector with the pump, and re-pinned the plastic end. 
Failing that and the car has a "transitional harness" (= early model year 
car using up factory stock of older harnesses and pumps), you could transfer 
the connectors into a 7-socket plug quite easily.
