RATTLING SOUND

1989 Subaru DL

1989 Subaru DL 4 cyl Manual 215100 miles

I have a rattling noise that seems to be coming from underneath the car, right about where the front seats are. It usually only happens when I'm coasting with the car in gear or right after I put the car into gear and accelerate, but I've noticed recently that if I drive the car for about 30 min and park it, the sound will remain for a few minutes and then fade slowly. The sound never appears until after the car has gotten up into 4th gear at least once. It sounds kinda like a bunch of rocks shaking around in a tin can. Any advice would be much appreciated
