The stock oil filler has a built-in funnel, so I doubt that a funnel would be needed.  It appears to have a screw cap, so it may be an oil container.  

Since the owner added a shelf to hold the jack and this item, it is anybody's guess what it might be.

Could it be one of those kerosene pots that you light like a safety flare or maybe a can for oil or gas?

 

Looks too thin to be a jack stand.

It's a funnel for adding oil. To be removed at car shows. The turnbuckles are weird, why not just use bungee chords?

 

There is a screw top to keep the dirt out. Yeah, it's just a funnel.

I don't think bungee cords would be period correct.

They look more like a spring and turnbuckle.

Does it have a bottom on it? My guess is that it's for oil or coolant and the shape is intended to make it easy to pour. If it has a bottom, then it's a container. No bottom, funnel. Can anyone confirm?
