Corvette Bronze (993) is a pretty color.  Have seen a few over the years.

I don't recall seeing something like that under the dash of "The Toy" when I had it.  But then I didn't do much poking around under the dash.  Whatever it is it looks like it has been there for quite awhile.

Looks like a capacitor to me, best I can tell by the pics. Corvettes have quite a few capacitors in the electrical systems to combat electrical noise, mostly in the radio. Tape or otherwise secure it back up under the dash in a safe place, and forget about it.
