Can anyone identify what this is for?

Answer coming soon
Beer can opener for Model T helpers party. Nice Idea.
Looks like some kind of washer holder.
To remove the seat from a carb??
Unsnap the band ears?
Hand rake to remove stubborn dried cow manure from the radiator fins...
I have no clue...must be for RHD cars.
holder for installing band lock washers and nuts.
For lifting coils from tight fitting coil boxes?
Looks like a spring cushion adjuster for the coils to me.
For ME maybe! I have long arms and used to be able to touch any point on my back.
For getting of hot radiator caps ?
Thanks for the responses.
Bob McD - Nice idea

I agree, beating and prying on a 100 year old wood coil box is not a good idea. Here is a tool I made last year:
