"Other changes were made to the interior as well. The interior door panels were remodeled to include reflectors that had been added at arm level for nighttime safety. Upholstery now featured a new “pebble grain” fabric. Even seatbelts, which had been practically unheard of before that model, were standard issue - factory installed in the 1958 Corvette."

Seat Belts are Standard

onsiderable effort has been made to enrich the interior of the Corvette. The 1963 models have all-vinyl interiors, and Chevrolet plans to offer genuine leather upholstery later in the year. Seat belts are standard.

I am with you Brian I thought that the belts were not installed in all 63s, but the article I posted sais the 63 was the first corvette with "standard " seat belts not dealer installed or ordered as an option and 58 and newer were optional -,I have had several early vettes and the best I can remember all did not have belts,,they had a ring in the floor Race car style that looked like belts had been there but removed ,,my 65 vette has them bolted to the floor non removable unless you remove bolts'

ihave a 86 vette that has 6 point harness but I don't think it will run fast enough to hurt you if it didn't have any ,LOL I will be removing the body and installing my 50 chevy truck on iy ,but that's a different story ,

I will try to find some interior photos of some of my older cars ,,just because I am curious now,not to try to prove I am right or wrong.

these are internet photos 1 with 1 without "58 "

When the"Old Man" bought the family 55 Buick (which I eventually inherited and wished I still had!) it came from the factory with "aircraft "type seat belts. Seat belts in cars started showing up believe it or not around the turn of the 19th century.

Years ago I did some work on a late 40's hearse. I have to imagine there were other cars with vacuum assist clutch and power windows ran off vacuum so this is kind of an odd question, what make of car was this?

It was Packard, it's your floor. This thing even had the vacuum asst clutch!

It had a straight 8 that I swear was 6 feet long!
It was a ambulance/hearse. I had drop down rollers that came from the sides for the casket.

I swear, if I hit the lotto those are the kind of cars I would like to collect, "working cars" police, taxis, that sort of thing, I dig them.
