Default 1966 Fastback Shoulder or Three-point Seatbelt Installation Help

I have a 1966 Fastback and I have wanted to install a shoulder or 3-point seatbelt for over a year, but have been unable to find any shop, person or online source to help me get the job done.

Has anyone installed shoulder belts in the front seat of a 1966 Fastback? The main problem is finding a way to anchor them.

Any recommendation or tips welcome.

Thanks!

I'm installing a 3pt seatbelt in my 66 Fastback. I have the brackets mounted in the car, just need to finish the interior before you see the actual seatbelts.

You need to drill two holes in the floor at or about the same location I did in the pictures for a holding point. You will also need to remover or partly remove your head liner. You will see some holes in the car's top frames (like in the picture). The kit gives you some bolt threaded steel bars, (like in the picture) for the seatbelt bolt to go at the top and at the bottom. You also get rivets to rivet this steel bar to the car for stability so when you bolt in the seatbelt after the headliner is back on but with a cut hole for that bolt, it will not move on you. The seatbelt kit I have is from www.cjponyparts.com It's about $220.

Hope this helps,
Greg

Thanks Greg! That helps a lot, the pictures especially. I suppose the next step is to open up my headliner, I'm just hoping to not have to redo the whole thing. My car is my daily driver and it can be tricky to tear it apart for such projects... looks like you have easy access to make these modifications. Good luck on your restoration!

I just installed 3 point seat belts in my daughters 67. if you have the headliner out or are willing to take it out ggregory has it right. however if you don't there is another option that is ok but probably not quite as good. it mounts the upper post behind the seat and through the door jamb.

here is a link to where I got mine.
Mustangs Unlimited - The Premier Source for Mustang, Shelby and Cougar Parts and Accessories

I used seats out of a 94 mustang that have the shoulder belt guide to keep the belt in the right place as well.

if you look closely at the attached picture you can see the cad plated mounting hardware in the door jamb. then you have to drill a hole in the floor to mount the retractor. the other two mounting points re-use the stock holes.
