Quick Overview

Clean. Simple. Basic. Functional. About as understated as any hood straps can be. These hood straps are the answer for anyone that wants the look & function of hood straps, without any of the flash. The buckle system is a pair of heavy duty stainless steel "D" rings, making an infinitely adjustable buckle system that has been used by harness makers for hundreds of years...talk about "old school"! This set of 4 "shorty" straps are made of our finest heavy duty 1 1/4" harness style leather, and feature stainless steel mounts top and bottom. Adjustable from about 15" to 22", they are sized to fit most any Hot Rod hood top. Available in Black, Natural Russet, 50 Year Old Black, and new hand applied and finished Mellow Tan & Dark Brown at additional cost. These new finishes have a nice aged patina to them, creating a great "old fashioned" look! Also available right next door in a "Full Hood" style, which consist of a pair of "over the top" style straps, designed to run from frame rail to frame rail over the top of the hood.

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.

NOTE: When ordering, please be sure to tell us what year, and model of hood you are running.  We have dimensions for most Ford Models from about 1910- 1937.   If you don't know what year your hood is, then please give us your hood measurements!   Input these dimensions in the "comments" section at our checkout page. This will help us make your straps to exactly fit your application.  We'll need the distance from the hood top edge to the frame rail, at both the front and rear of the hood, taken about 4 to 6 inches in from the ends. We will build in enough adjustment so that your straps will fit properly, so give us the exact dimensions and we'll take it from there.  Since most of our hood straps are custom made to order, they may take a few days to produce, so please allow time for this.  Even with custom orders, we usually ship within 2-5 days of receiving the order.  If you have questions or aren't sure of what size you need, call us, we are happy to walk you through the measuring process!

NOTE:  50 YEAR OLD BLACK IS BACK! 

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. 

NOW, YOU'VE GOT 2 DISTRESSED, VINTAGE LOOKING LEATHERS TO CHOOSE FROM!!
