What should the original 66 seatbelts look like? Mine have a button (old-style), but I think the originals had a latch-type, yes?
There are some on ebay right now, and they are different from mine. Potential purchase if need be.

I have the button type on my '66 GT convert. According to the Mustang Recognition Guide, page 77, "Standard seat belts are color-keyed in '66. Optional deluxe belts have a push button release."

while that book has lots of nice schematics, it's best to not use it as a 'say-all' reference.

in answer to the question... there are 2 kinds of belts in 66, standard and deluxe. The standard are plastic pull ups and the deluxe are push-buttons. If you got the deluxe seatbelts, you automatically got a seat belt warning light mounted under the ignition switch.

I wasn't aware of that. By the way my car does have the seat belt warning light to go with the deluxe button release seat belts.

My '66 has the push button belts, but the warning light is missing. I have a warning light in the '67 coupe, are they similar/the same, where should it be located in the '66?

Mine is centered between the ignition switch and lighter with the back of the light assy flush with the bottom of the dash.
