I always wonder about things like this, usually something like:
"If this part isn't needed, then why did the engineers go to all the trouble of designing, fabricating and installing it?"

I had never seen a bracket like this on any car till I got to messin' with Fox Stangs and Birds. I figured since the older cars got along without it, it was just extra weight. I suspect it probably is some type of noise or viberaton dampner, and with my rumpty rump cam I'd never tell the difference. Anyway 5 years later and and all is well...

There is one of those brackets on my 1989 Crown Victoria also, some kind of stabilizer or support maybe?

Makes a good door stop.
Also works as a good parking brake when u toss out the AOD and go stick.
