Default 1966 Mustang Deluxe Seat Belts

Can anyone tell me were I can buy repo, or original, black deluxe seat belts for a 66? Can't find them anywhere!!! or much written about them or what they look like exactly.

My GT is mostly original, and whats not origianal, I am reverting back to original. Per the build sheet under the dash, my car had these as an option with the seat belt warning light, but weren't there when I bought the car.

Thanks for the help!!!

ponyman65, yes, CJ's "deluxe" belt says it has a "60's era look" and is not the standard or deluxe origianl style seatbelt. Its a generic replacement. the only other belt they have has a three bar with pony logo on the top ot it, definelty not original.

Does anyone know if the 67 deluxe belt is the same for the 66 belt. I can find the 67 belt form places like Dallas Mustang and others, but doesn't say if it the same for the 66.

Thanks

My car came from the factory with them. It still had the belts in when I got it, but the warning light and retractors were missing. Basically it is like the airplane style belts you can buy from mustang parts suppliers, but it had a coloured plastic cover on the buckle and a coloured boot over the bolt down plate. I will take pictures when I get home.

Thanks 66sprint200, so its not a pushbotton style like the '67s. I sure thought that 66 standard belts had a colored plastic cover and were airplane style (pull up latch type) too???

These guys will have what you're looking for.
Ford Belts

Not cheap but well worth the cost. I'm looking for a set myself.

I was going to take a picture of my Palamino colored deluxe belts but the link gjz30075 provided looks to be exactly what a black pair should look like including the retractors. See the attached photo for an original seat belt light. I recall that the repros of these I have seen advertised are a stick-on variety and I have no idea how authentic looking they might be or how they work without a hole through the dash metal. I also can't tell you exactly where the timer is that turns the light on and off since it has never given me any problem and I never bothered to try and find it.

The light has NOTHING to do with the seat belts. Its just a red light that glows for 10 seconds every time you turn ON the ignition switch.

thanks gjz30075, I put in a email inquiry to python. I didn't realize the 66 deluxe belts had retractors. i appreciate the reference. Ivy 66GT, my dash is original so it already has the whole for the warning light there, i am trying to find somplace to get the original style light, I haven't seen one of the stick on types myself either to know how they look. If anyone know a place to get the non-stick on warning light I would appreciate it.

Thanks for everyones help!

I was just checking details for another thread and thought they might be pertinent to this one also.

As you probably know, the original seat belt light was held in its ~5/8" diameter hole by a spring on the back side. The '66 belts were both just like those pictured in the link above: Standard was a colored plastic (black in your case) covered lift-up affair and the deluxe ones were panted metal to always(?) match the painted part of the doors with a round, chrome-looking metal(?) push button in the center. The cover on both styles had texture similar to that found on the door metal just inside the window. The texture match was much better on the metal deluxe belts than the plastic standard ones. Deluxe had retractors for the outside ends of the front belts.

The deluxe ones I described are original to my '66 coupe; the standard ones are not original to my GT (also Ivy w/ black) but carry a 1-66 date.

Its a dreary day so I've been hitting the computer today.

Surely you all understand that 'panted metal' above really means PAINTED.

How about this for how to wire you deluxe seat belt light?
