Get some seatbelts. No car is worth the life of a person. even more so if it is your child.

I think he's full of s#$@. My 65 came with front and rear belts. The bolt hole for the front should be on the hump and door sill area. Has it been re-carpeted? Maybe the po covered them up. If so use your finger to feel for them.

You need to crawl underneath that car and find the holes, or pull the back seat out and they will be where the rear wheelwells start.My understanding was that it was in 1966 that seatbelts became mandatory for all cars, but before that they were an option.

Yes ! Body style 63 or 65 came with c6oz 62611a72 or c7oz those are the push button type prior to 3/28/66 after 3/28 and up until 5/16 it was c6oz or c6zz76611a72 thats hard top coupe or fastback , body type 76 , convertible was c6zz76611a72 ... now , those are just basic part numbers , they could have been retractable or non retractable And center push button release or buckle release depending on what hardware they were ordered with. they could have come in any stock color . The vast majority at that time used black . But either way get those belts before you hurt yourself or someone else . BE SAFE , Bill

The front inner seat belt bolt can be found by looking up from underneath either side of the drive shaft and poking a 'short' point (an ice pick, but be careful) thru the not plate and thru the carpet to mark inside. The outer bolt is located on the vertical part of the door sill. Slide the seat forward and poke around intil you 'feel' the hole. The bolts are a special hex head 7/16-20 x 1 1/2 inch long with steel and rubber washers. You can get a kit from National Parts Depot. I also recomend you subscribe to Mustang Monthly Magazine.

I could get you a D/S seat belt for $5 + shipping. I don't have the P/S one tho. It wasn't in the car when I bought it.

Lemme know if you want the belt or not.

If you are driving it without right now dont worry cuz theyre only lap belts and a cop cant see on your lap so if he says he pulled you over no seatbelts,hes lying.

Mat11089 : Get a clue ! Most of us can afford the ticketI would assume. Alot of us even respect the police , I would imagine . Some of us even forget to buckle up occasionally. BUT , it's not about any of that ! She wants to make sure when she goes through an intersection and some drunk or smoked out tweek runs the light or the stop sign , she DOES NOT launch her child into traffic via the front window. As for you , if you don't choose to use a belt and think it is OK cause no cop can see them , then go ahead ... I assume you are an adult , but please for the children's benefit , let's teach them to be safe. G/B ,Bill

We have quite a lengthy discussion on installing 3 point belts. Use the search engine and go to the FAQ to see how you can do it. The lap belts that came with the early models are better than no seat belt at all, but not by much.

May I gleefully point out the the Governor of new Jersey did not have his seat belt on and was in a crash, his driver was speeding. That same Governor of New Jersey went home today after three weeks in the hospital. His motorcade was clocked at 15 miles per hour over the limit. Ever get real upset at politicians? Wear a seatbelt. (Insert your own secret word for the underlined one.)

Actually, my WONDERFUL [end sarcasm] governor's motorcade was doing 91 (26 over the limit)whilebeing driven by a state trooper (the reason it was going so fast).The trooper should get a speeding ticket and some time off, w/o pay and the gov'ner should get s publicly issued ticket for being in a car without his seat belt on, since he pushes soooo hard for the law. The ticket won't mean crap, nor will the fine, but what really needs to happen is he needs to be forced to step down over this.





Our gay gov'ner isn't looking too bad anymore. Bring back McGreevy!!! He may be gay, but he sure as hell ain't a hypocrite!!!

I'm sorry Anthony, let me add something - 'the Governor of New Jersey, ON HIS WAY HOME AFTER THREE WEEKS IN THE HOSPITAL was clocked at 15 over the limit. The same bit of arrogance was exibited by the driver of the former governor of California, Gray Davis, who was clocked at 90mph on a two lane state highway (46). Do as Isay, not as I do.
And to ty4my66, you should get seatbelts. If you want the best quality reconditioned belts, try www.ssnake-oyl.com All new webbing and re-chromed hardware. National Parts Depot has some 3 point type and some where on the forum there is a long string about them.
