The retractable side should be the male side of the belt and it should be bolted just inside the rocker sill at the rear of the front seat, there should be a threaded hole for it to bolt to. The female side bolts to the tunnel about 2" down from the top, there should be one on each side. You should have 5 buckles and 5 inserts, the extra 2 are for the shoulder harness (this is for a bench seat). Sorry I have no pics at this time.:(

Bob, here's some photos of my '69 showing where the factory bosses are for the male retractors and the female buckle on the tunnel. If you don't have correct floorpans, and have to fab the floorpan, then you'll have to take an educated guess as to where the mounts are located, and use phots as guide. I thought I had exact measurements for mounting bosses, but can't find that info. Hope photos help.

Say Brick. In your 1st pic I think what you have circled are the clips that hold the rear seat down. The rear seatbelt attachment point is at the little square you cut in the carpet to the right of the clips. But then I may be wrong!!

Here are some pics of the belts in my '71...

The retractor and the lap belt both attach to a bracket that went into the factory hole for the driver's lap belt...


The shoulder part went into the factory hole for the original ones that clipped up by the roof liner...This did take some modifications...


The female portion of the set went into the factory hole that is on the side of the tunnel...


I didn't want to pull the rear seat (which is a major pain in mine!) but there are 4 factory holes down at the bottom of the panel that seperates the trunk. I only have 2 sets of lapbelts (no shoulder harnesses back there) but you could put a third in the middle by doubling up on the 2 inner factory holes.

Hope this helps,

Dave

You're right, Dave. That's an old photo I was using to show someone how the rear seat went back in. I should have put a red arrow pointing to the tunnel where the front belt bolts to. Those square holes in the insulation that you spoke of accept a bolt that goes through a steel loop that's attached to the lower part of the seat back that keeps the upright part of the seat tight. To be honest, I never had any belts in the back, so I really don't know where they mount to. When I bought the '69 14 years ago, there were no belts in the car, so I found a complete set of black belts from another '69, and just installed the front ones. I just recently took them out and installed the 3 point belts from Morris Classics. I haven't taken the car for a ride since I put them in, so I'm hoping that they'll be comfortable. If they're not, I'll pull them out, and put the old belts back in. If I really like the 3 pointers, I know someone who needs a set of belts for their car (Taz).
