Sems I'm having trouble describing what I'm looking for. The "rod"
itself is nothing but a tightly coiled spring (about 5 or 6 mm diam.).
Cut the desired length and screw an eye bolt inside each end of the
spring. Fasten the spring to the wall with a screw through each eye
bolt, stretching it a little to keep it tight. Imagine using it to hang
a curtain over the rear window of a van. Something strictly cheap and
functional. Would only be used for light curtains.

talking about a rod with a spring inside it, but a stretchable
tightly-coiled spring that was screwed into a wall using an eye at each
Anyone know where to buy such springs?
Yes, they were quite common. Often used on doors.
