Help 66 fairlane gt bucket seat belts.

I'm sorta at a crossroads with what to do for seat belts.
First I don't know exactly what the correct one should look like.
I see many on ebay for 200 and up used and taddered!
They seem to have different length retractors and different buckles,
and really don't know what I actually should be looking for.
Not opposed to a modern day aftermarket belt provided it satisfies
our seat belt law.
Can anyone link me a photo of what a bucket seat lap belt for 66 fairlane gt
should look like.
Any experience with aftermarket restraint installs would be helpfull too.
Thanks guys!

Two styles, several colors

The seat belt color is coordinated with seat/interior color.

Standard belts look like this:

Deluxe belts look like this:

That helps alot

It was the retractors that I'm questioning, guessing the ones you show are bucket seat and those other stubby looking ones
I've been seeing are for bench seat.
Thanks.

None of my 66 Fairlanes had retractors

I think retractors were introduced later, though nobody is going to give you grief if you add some.

I'm thinking half of those in the pic's are for the rear seat probably. My Cyclone don't have retractors and I have buckets. I would think Fairlanes are same.

No retractors

February 10 2018, 10:21 AM 

I wouldn't have ever known this, I'm leaning toward just buying some universal type belts with retractors.
But if I could come up with an original oem set I would install them.
Now I'm back to epay continuing my search of original 66 fairlane seat belts.

If you are not in a hurry, I can dig up the ones from ‘67 race car. I don’t actually remember if they were standard or deluxe but I’ll
never use them again. They were black and I don’t remember exactly what they looked like condition wise. I just have to find the box they are in, took them out 21 years ago....sad.gif
