Any opinions on the differences between these two seat belt bolts? Is one better than the other in any way? Anyone know the reason for the change in the type of bolt used in 1968?

I believe the change to Torx was to discourage consumer removal. Both a safety measure and a reduction of legal liability potential for Ford (and some other manufacturers too).

Maybe something as simple as the Torx bolt was faster to install on the assembly line.
