Default 3-Point Seatbelts in a 66'?

I've seen guides on how to do it 68's+, but not in the 65's/66's. I know it's possible since I saw Kelly_H's Calamity Jane had them, but I was wondering if anyone had a guide on how to do it.

Thanks!

Contact these folks and ask them if they can copy and send you the installation instructions.

what? there have been some excellent posts with photos on here by members that took a lot of time and documented doing this frt and rear on 65/66 cars...are you using the search button feature on the forum? Its something you can easily do and a smart safety upgrade for you and your passenger.

A 'how-to' for a 68 should hardly be needed, it was factory to have a shoulder strap in 68.

This has been discussed at length. I have seen 65-66 Mustangs with 3-point belts done at Glazier/Nolan, once I even saw rear seat 3-point there.

Here's a search of this site-

You don't even have to remove the headliner (just pull the sides down a bit), and I just finished the rear 3 point install:

Yep, it isn't difficult to do 3-points in the '65s/'66s. It is more difficult to do them in a coupe than in a fastback, and even more difficult to do them in a convertible (you didn't mention which you have). If you've got a fastback and need any help / pictures, feel free to contact me and I'll see if I've got anything worthwhile

I'm going to be restoring a coupe in about a year as my first car.

Thanks anyways Kelly!
