found this tucked in behind my passenger seat of my recently acquired bay window purchase. it was really dirty and i attempted to clean it up but sadly the paint started coming off. it has wooden trays inside that are rotted in places but decent overall.

It's either really old or it's a replica of something. It's got the cogwheel logo.

It's trash, flatten it out and use it to patch that rust hole in the floor.

It's for the flux capacitor that was originally installed in your bus when new.

If a repro is worth $275 then a real McCoy might be worth thousands to the right person.
