Adam, I was trying to find nice original 'type' seatbelts for my '66 Duetto when JimG suggested some belts from JEGS.
I ended up buying a nice set of lap belts, with price matching from eBay for about $45. The belts are 'Retro Belt -USA' brand. I was a little disappointed to find out they were 'made in China' but they look very good. They have not been installed yet but I suspect they may need to be shortened a foot or two.

The original belts on my '72 are a mix of retractable and non-retractable belts. That is to say, the lap belt portion is retractable, and the shoulder belt is not retractable and clips into the belt after you latch the lap belt.

Joe, is this like the original setup?

I have installed a complete set of the Securon belts in a 74 GTV That did not have any retractable belts at all in the frt. These were actually quite a PIA installation is easy but the retractable part seemed to have a mind of its own, sometimes would pull out clean, most times not, would not always retract all the way

Have a look at Seatbelt planet if you are not interested in original and believe it or not Walmart I looked at a lot of different seat belts for an upgrade to a 70 BMW 2002ti that I am restoring for a fellow. There is lot out there


Thanks, Rick

Follow-up to this: has anyone tried the Retrobelt retractable seat belts that are available at Summit Racing and JEGS? I have the Classic Alfa Securon ones in my '74 GTV and the retractor is kind of crap on them, so they're a real pain to use.
