You could try a salvaged pair out of a late '68 or '69. But if you are
interested in also maintaining stock appearance, be advised that
previous belts were of a different design than the above mentioned
years. I am bringing a set of factory '67 sholder belts to the SCG
meeting at the convention this year. They ARE markedly different! Not to
mention rare, also.

BTW, anyone have a '69 coupe with verifiable factory REAR sholder belts?
I'd like some details.

I'm also interested in obtaining a second-design '67 or '68 pair of
front retractors for a gold interior. Have black or '67 blue to trade,
if necessary.
