Too vague...

Standard or Deluxe??!??

Standard Seat belts are the same for '64 1/2 to '66... '67 Standard Belts are the same too, but have smaller Anchors.

Deluxe Seatbelts for '64 1/2 to '65 were the same, but the '66-'67 Deluxe Belts were of a different design....'66 and '67 Deluxe Belts were the same.

Got it now?

So which do you need! Do you know how to identify them

64.5 had two styles of finish, same partial flipper buckle style, early one had a machined pattern on a bright buckle and had a clamp style anchors that went around a cast ring bolt to the floor, the later style/65 was the same buckle with a color matched coating and the standard chrome triangle and bolt anchor. 66 and 67 used the same color matched buckle with the center push button but 66 used the bright chrome triangle anchor at the floor while 67 use the small brushed chrome rounded rectangle anchor

I have boxes of seat belts, and probably 30 various 65 66 black, all flavors.

That being said, the seat belt material back then was rated for 18 years. It is way past safe any more.

You can pull it as hard as you want, and it will hold, but may not hold in a 30 mph accident, so . . . .

It the belt for you, or for someone else?

I do not rebuild seat belts, but know people who do, to current safety standards. I will be glad to sell you a core belt for rebuilding, just with the webbing slashed. I do not want to be responsible for death / Injury due to a 50 year old belt failing.

It is not the pushbutton type,but a flap which lifts up 1/2 inch.Has the flat triangle bolt anchor.So I guess standard 1966 type.Mine is frozen withen the buckle and no longer adjustable.Hoping to find one with good chrome and not frayed webing

Thanks, If you are referring to the '64.5 Chrome "Snakeskin" Pattern, and that other Early '65 Deluxe belts just had painted covers, - Those are known as " '64.5 to Early '65 "Deluxe" Seatbelts. Some 1964 1/2 Half cars also got the Standard Plastic Clamshell Seatbelts as well. Did you know that I have quite a few Plastic Clamshell Mustang belts in my own collection dated 1964.

I knew all of that 30+ years ago already....although it may help enlighten those others here that don't know..

I wrote a thread a couple of years ago here in the archives somewhere detailing each...and it was a lengthy thread if I remember with lots of others contributing.. If you search the VMF archives, You'll probably find it.

What you are describing is a "Standard" Seatbelt with the Standard Black Plastic Clamshell.... It was the most common 1966 seatbelt. It should not be hard to find a replacement, though conditions will certainly vary..

I will take it if the chrome is half way descent and the belt is not frozen in the adjuster clamshell.Is the "webbing slashed" as you previously mentioned?
