    Looks like just an old propane tank, probably tossed in and just ended up there.

    When I saw it, one word jumped out at me- hulk[xx(]

    Wonder if anyone will want it?

        I'm thinking accessory coolant filter? Looks a lot like the oil filter, but it seems to be plumbed in with 5/8" hose. Kind of low-res pics.

            I agree with Gord that it is plumbed for something, it appears to have the remnants of heater hose on it. The canister is also not as wide as the oil filter that is on the truck. It also appears that there is a governor plate below the carb.

            When I saw this thing on Saturday night I was struck by all the vines under the hood. Some of you may have read about a similar truck that George Hamlin rescued from Bull Run and restored.

                The can looks like it could have been some sort of bomb. And it looks like it went off!

                    Just a guess....could it have been connected to the object that is
                    located under the dash and glove box, and looks like a heater unit?

                        Just a WAG,(wild a** guess), it might be a coolant resivoir for that strange looking heater under the dash. Maybe it was to make sure there was plenty of extra hot coolant for the heater. After all, that's a pretty big area to try to heat when it's cold.[:0]
