Need Help Identifying Leather Straps

Hello! I'm new to the Forum and in need of help in identifying some leather straps for what I believe would be an early MBZ from the late '40s or '50s but I'm not sure!

The straps are varying lengths..some have holes to be attached directly while others have brackets attached...and some have loop clips...one pair is lined on the underside in a moleskin or wool...my thought is that some may be hood straps for a 170 or possibly luggage straps or?

Any help would be most appreciated--thanks!

Ah yes, those would be from the Mercedes S&M line of limos.
Nahh, just kidding, I don't have a clue but it was too good to pass up.

anybody have an informed guess?

Could some of these be luggage straps? And any chance the padded long pair could be for a 170 hood?
