The clamp between the two vulcanising ones could be used at the top of the windscreen post of a tourer car. Photo of 1929 Nash.

Not really. It is a mounting clamp for an Acme clothes wringer.

Special tool to access to a particularly difficult-to-access bolt or nut on a vehicle or specific piece of machinery?

Apparently not all wringers were mounted on a dividing wall or partition in a laundry trough, so they had a more flexible mounting. The attached photo gives you the general idea of how that happened.

Quality tools were expensive even back then. But you do get what you pay from. I'm still using some I've had since the '60s and even my old dad's Sidchrome 18" shifter from the '40s.
If it's old, treat it like gold.
