My 1970 Chevelle it’s just about completed. I am looking for front seat belts a three point type that looks as close as possible to stock. I know they didn’t have the three point without the separate belt on the headliner but I would like to get something. Do you and if you have any recommendations? Thanks

On my Blue 66 Elky I used belts from an old(square) body S-10 Blazer.
Single retractor at side of seat.
Just added a mount bolt on roof pillar between rear glass and upper door frame area.
Using factory floor holes.
Not sure how it would anchor on a Hardtop.

If you want new, aftermarket, these are somewhat close and have the GM push button latch.

 OMG, no kidding, absolutely stunning !!

There should be a bolt anchor in the roof structure for the original shoulder belt above the quarter window seal area.

I LOVE that ivory interior. IF I ever get my '70 restored, that is what it will have. My '70 SS LS5 car I bought in 1973 was all black with the white stripe.

Hard to find a pic of the shoulder belt mounting location on the web. This is a '69, but same basic roof structure.

There is a pad with 3 holes you should be able to feel thru the headliner. The 2 outer are threaded for the belt mount bracket. They are rearward from the front edge of the quarter window and 6-8 inches in front of the clothes hook.

Hey Mitch yes I know where those bolt holes are I was thinking it would be more in line with the bucket seats. I think I’m going to give those three points a try. Thanks so much Tim

I have used SSnake oyl for years. They do perfect restorations or driver quality. They also sell aftermarket belts and parts.

Your car is spectacular! In the reflections you can see how straight it is.

 Thank you for the link and a nice comments. I will have the final cut, buff and polish done on it by the end of October and that should still make a difference on the depth and shine. Yes it is very straight I’m happy with it. Thanks again
