That part replaces the kit part behind the seat. Someone with more Skyraider knowledge can tell us the difference between the USAF and USN version.

That resin part represents the rocket & harness for the Yankee extraction system fitted to the Skyraider aft of the pilot seat to act as a "poor man's" ejection seat. This appeared on both USN & USAF A-1's.

Much more than you ever wanted to know here:
