shelby mustang seatbelts

Howdy Guys!

Well, I've got a 68 firebird and my wife says I have to do two things to the interior before she will consent to take a ride with me. First, change out the seats to those with headrests. Second, upgrade the lap belts.

Now a friend of mine says that he had a shelby mustang in the 60s and it had a 4-point belt system that had retractors on it. Does anyone know if these are available anywhere? Also, approximate cost and will they install in my firebird?

Thanks,

Jerry

I don't know if you could find the originals, maybe at a specialty house.. but Summit Racing and Jeg's sell harnesses, you could find something that would work.

My friend Steve had a Shelby GT 500, as I recall it did have 4 point belts. What a rush, at 16, to cruise in that....

Howdy Pmeisel!

Thanks for the hint, but the reason I am looking for the shelby 4-point system is that it had an inertia system, meaning you could lean around and not be held tight in the seat, at least that's what my friend says.

The harnesses at Summit (don't know about Jegs as I don't have one of their catalogs) are total racing harnesses and don't have interia wheels on them.

This may not be what you want either, but I bought my sons Corbeau harness for their Jeep. They have two shoulder straps that meet behind you in a V and connect to a single inertia wheel. I think they were about $100 a pair. If you are interested check 4WD.com or maybe Quadratec.

I think the factory set up is best but they will be hard to find....
