<Did 1962 Corvairs have seatbelts?? >
No, not as standard equipment.  '62 Corvairs did, for the first time,  come 
from the factory with mounting holes drilled in the floors for the  
installation of lap belts for front, outboard positions.  Thus, little  plugs found 
under the carpet or rubber mat could be popped out and optional seat  belts 
easily bolted in for the driver and one front passenger.  Some states  
began requiring this front lap belt mounting provision for cars beginning with  
the 1962 model year.  I know, for instance, that Ohio did.
