Definitely not stock stuff there. They are brackets for the rear stabilizer bar. I would suggest either removing the bar completely, or tie it up out of the way until you can remove it. If it moves forward under braking it could possibly get hung up in the suspension back there.

73shark is correct, as long as the bar itself is not interfering with anything moving, it should be safe to drive. A lot of c3's did not have rear sway bars so nothing to get overly concerned with. However, you might want to look at where the brackets you found hanging where bolted onto the trailing arm, just to make sure they didn't "rip out' where they were bolted on. Chances are they didn't, but doesn't hurt to take a look. This is a "stock picture" of how the stock sway bar mounts are mounted and located
just at the rear of the trailing arm.
