The small strap on the door post area is usually called something like a "passenger assist strap" for entry and exit from the rear of the car. The rope-like strap attached to the back of the front seat is called a "robe rail". They were originally used to hold a blanket for the rear passengers.

Funny almost all manufacturers stopped making those assist straps except one manufacturer that actually still had them into the early 2000's.

I remember my grandfather had a hard time getting out of the back seat area of our 59 Pontiac hardtop. As the new GM cars got channeled starting in 1958 you really needed a strap to get out of the rear area.
