    Hello all! Can anyone tell me what these rods are? They are spare parts that came in the trunk of my 67 barracuda convertible. They are labeled but hard to make out. They do refer to left and right. Thanks!

      Thanks! The seller said there are trim pieces in the trunk and I've found that some are from other cars. If they are from my car and there were none installed would the car handle differently?

      I believe that are braces that go between the fender lip and the inner fender panel to keep the fender from flapping in the breeze.

      They have no effect on the suspension or handling.

      This photo is from my 67 Dart but you get the idea

      On a Barracuda they don't go to the lower corner, they are at the middle of the opening, above the top of the wheel. It is a much shorter, flatter brace. I don't think any of those belong on a Barracuda.
