Apparently not all cars came with seatbelts so I have posted mine here. Note: ‘factory correct’ have the soft rubbery vinyl sleeve at the bottom to cover the connectors to avoid rattling. They mount to heavy duty forged eye bolts. If you look at the picture, top right you will see that there are two plates that swing to open to catch the eye bolt. Sold as an option only, they were expensive at $18.83 for the pair! Compare that to a complete electric 2 speed windshield washer system with jug and a supply of ‘special detergent antifreeze fluid’ for $16.46 (included on the Jetfire but an option on the base version F85’s) Seatbelts were mandatory equipment in cars built in North America from 1966 onward and in 1976 Ontario, Canada started to enforce that we use them. Not sure about the USA and when they became mandatory – was that ‘state’ decision?
