Default Can Anyone ID These Braces?

Not sure what these are. I found these in a bag while cleaning up. Maybe not even from a Corvette

The round long braces sure look like the supports going from say steering column and down to kick panel and trans hump....essentially same on other side.....

the flat ones...I dunno...... But I wonder if maybe they associated with a trans cross member/trans mounting??? they look greasy and of course the rusty one in the middle.....still no clue from me.....

Just going by memory, but the two or three on the left look like bumper braces.

Don't look like anything I remember from my car, however the top one is shaped kind of like my original strut rods were......

That's it. The 3 flat steel brackets are front bumper mounts. Two of the 4 rods could be rear bumper support rods?

I think your right, they look like front and rear chrome bumper supports. Look them up in someone's parts catalog and compare

Years ago, I eliminated a stupid support rod going from center of my front bumper on the '72......to of all places the lower radiator support, so a slight tap in front stood a good chance to take out the radiator support and make the car not drivable.....should have been tied to the boomerang shaped bolt on cross support .....It's been off my car for some 20 years now....
