A claim could be made that the FJ-1 was developed from the Mustang...  ;)

Well Brian, in as much as the prototype Supermarine Attacker was initially called the Jet Spiteful, the Fury FJ-1 is really a Jet Mustang, it just got a new fuselage ---

Here is another. The A/C is carrying a WSEM (AIM-4D simulator) and it is extended out into the air stream.

YouTube video on the F-101 Voodoo with some interesting [for me at least] details.  One in particular is the stores station directly under the air intake on the prototype F-101.  Never saw that before now and it certainly makes you wonder if in additional to the fuel tank-pylon what other things could be mounted in this location.

Is it something different from this arrangement?

Is that a Mark 7 Nuke shape between the drop tanks?

Yes, very different location.  I am quite familiar with the usual stores stations locations and what was shown in the video clip was definitely not what you show in your attached image.  The store that was affixed to the underside of the air intake had a strong resemblance to an integrated fuel tank/stores pylon for lack of a better description and it was unique enough to catch my attention.  Otherwise I would not have bothered to mention it, let along share the video link.

Have a look at 4.05, it looks like an early style of drop tank.

Flight testing of the first aircraft, F-101A 53-2418, there was no prototype as such,
revealed irregular flow issues in the air intakes and compressor stall. Internal intake
layout and compressor modifications cured the problems, but I have to wonder if
having that pylon and tank mounted there might not be the best idea. Also it may
be that the redesign on the intake internal layout led to the mounting structure going
away.
