"...the issue with retractors in a coupe is that they have to mount  
somewhere near the floor and they are fairly large, which means easy to trip  over

under/through the shoulder belt...
Agreed, Kent, those are valid considerations; but, the alternative: risking 
 driving without modern 3-point belts, is (I believe) a considerably 
greater  concern. The installation in my 67 moves the retractor fully rearward, 
and has  not caused any issue during the infrequent use of the rear 
Installation pictures, with comments, have now been completed and can be
