Availability: In stock.


Quick Overview

Here's a new style hood strap, designed just for you Deuce owners-or anybody running a '32 hood. It was designed with the assistance of a '32 owner that wanted to be able to run just a hood top part time to show off the engine, but he didn't want to be drilling holes or making modifications to ANYTHING. So, I designed a set of easy on/easy off Shorty Hood Straps, just for Deuce hoods. To install, all you need to do is pull the hinge pin, (or rod) out, take off the side panels, install the Shorty Straps onto the hinge rod, (see pics) set it back on the car. The top of the straps mount to the hinge rod, and the bottom of the straps mount to the original, stock spring loaded hood latches-no holes to drill, nothing to modify! When you want to put the side back on the hood, you can do so easily. And, they are infinitely adjustable, so they will be nice and tight, with just the tension from the stock hood latches! As with all our hood straps, they are made of 1 1/4" wide high quality, heavy harness type leather, with stainless steel hardware, and machine set nickel rivets. These are available in Black, Natural Russet, 50 Year Old Black, (with optional Acrylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat) and our new colors, Mellow Tan and Dark Brown. These two new colors have a bit of a patina to them, kind of an old, mellow looking finish, and they cost a bit more, as they're hand applied and finished.   As with most of our hood straps, these are made to order, so please allow 3-5 days for production time proir to shipping.


NOTE:  These are designed to fit a STOCK '32 FORD ONLY.  They are not designed to work with any other make, model or year. 


The optional Actylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat permanently protects the straps against damage from UV or wet weather.  We recommend this option for the NATURAL RUSSET, BLACK & 50 YEAR OLD BLACK straps, as they are essentially "unfinished" leathers.  Without this clearcoat finish, they should be regularly  treated with "Neatsfoot Oil" or other good quality boot oil  for longer service life.  Mellow Tan and Dark Brown have the Saddlmakers Acrylic Clearcoat already. 


It's replacment, "Distressed Black", a much less "beat up" looking leather, is still available, too!  It still looks old, just not as old.  It is a black finish, with a mottled, slightly worn look.  Call for a sample.
