          That is an owner or dealer added A/C system or parts of a system.

          that is not the factory location for that. And you can see the wonky brackets

            I thought it might be an AC component considering that hardline ran towards the front in front of the radiator and went to nothing. I'm removing it now should I hang on to it or toss it? a quick google search has them new ranging from 15$ to 90$ . I won't have a use for it thats for sure.

            toss it.

            not factory lines or routing like the others you see for sale. The driers are typically re-used.

              Dryers are trashed when left open to the atmosphere.

              You can also remove the conduit clamp just above the heater motor

              Don't damage the water squirters, yours look to be in good shape.

                yea they seem to be in great condition minus some surface rust on the mounts. Im going to place all the parts that I can sell off in a tote.

                  From what I can see of your engine compartment it seems rust free in the seams.

                  You might want AC in AZ. Search for the long post on compressor options for a slant six. If you run across a 1977-78 Volare/Aspen slant in the nice junkyards of AZ, see if it has a Sanden compressor. If so, grab those rare brackets.
