Help! What is this part?!

I've been restoring my 1970 LeMans, and came upon this piece.

It looks like it's bracing the quarter panel, but is loose and wiggles, and I would love to take it out to avoid unnecessary rattling. Any ideas as to what these are?

It looks like a brace to prevent the 1/4 panel from "oil canning" if leaned on too hard. I would simply apply some fresh windshield urethane or panel bond to the 1/4 side and let it be. Of course clean it up a bit 1st so you get a nice bond.

666bbl is dead on. That's a brace that's supposed to be bonded to the inside of the quarter panel with a foam type adhesive that has some give to it (but not much).
