Actually, I've never noticed until now. One of my sets are missing the decal whereas the other car's seat belts "do" have the decals. They are in OK but not great condition. Another thing that I noticed is the positioning of the decals. I don't know which is left or right as they are removed from the car, but on the buckle where the name KLIPPAN is shown, on one belt, the decal is above the N as shown in the earlier pic in this thread, but the other buckle has the label above the K. I thought that was kind of interesting. The belts that do have the decals are from a crash damaged vehicle that has only 16352 original miles and the new car dealer registration sticker still barely visible on the windshield. So in essence, this car is as close to original as I can find. I'll PM you with more information as we are also discussing another similar thread.

I found the seatbelt ends depicted in the 1971 sales brochure. Looks like the decal is on the left side (but now I wonder if they might be on both sides, being on the right on the other). I looked through four period magazines (Road & Track, Sports Car Graphic, Road Test, and Motor Trend) and while I can't see the buckles in any of them, I can see hoops.

And I can see them in the GTV as well.

Thank you for digging this up, Bob. I guess you'll be in for two. :-)

Please do not take offense to this but sales brochures can certainly be misleading and/or wrong. Being that I own two 1971 spiders, I can assure you without any doubt that these are the correct kind of seat belts and that the labels are on each side as to provide symmetry when both buckles are buckled. See photo. It makes sense once seen.

No offense taken! It wouldn't surprise me if Alfa did things differently from one week to the next.

So, we are about half way there. I'm glad to know they were fitted to the 71 model year cars. That should attract more interest.

you could also contact the usual vendors like OKP or classic alfa, they might be interested to buy a batch as well so they can offer them to their customers. They are always opened to new products..

Or maybe Uri at Mt. Carmel Spares. This seems right up his alley.

Thanks for the suggestions. I actually want to hold these close. I like the exclusivity of offering things no one else has. I really don't want to compete or step on toes.

I'm pretty sure that all of the stickers I've drafted up, with the exception of two, are not being offered by vendors.

I started reproducing valve cover decals for the 50's and 60's Chris Craft engines. I was contacted by one of the companies that sells parts for the old Chris Crafts. They wanted to by a couple of sets because one of their customers wanted them.

Next thing I know they have them in their catalog for double the price I sell them for and they have never ordered any since. I later found out they used mine to reproduce theirs.

So be careful. There are suppliers out there that will use your stickers to reproduce them so they can sell them without getting them from you.

That's very sad. I hope folks are still buying yours.

I've actually thought about this sort of thing happening. I hope there is some mutual respect in the community and that this won't happen.
