My understanding of the leather bonnet straps on Healey 100Ms were required by LeMans regulations and if you look at LeMans entries from 1954, it seems all the entrants had leather retaining straps of some kind. Never saw them on a Cobra, though, and I guess the LeMans regulations changed in later years.
