My first car was a '68. It had the shoulder belt in it (It was not functional in the least). The strange thing about my car is that it had '67 rear quarters. It was an early '68 model. A couple of people told me that Ford probably just used "leftovers" on it.

PS - I like your car.

Interesting. I've been thinking about putting shoulder belts in my 68 and I wondered how they mounted. Unfortunately the headliner is about the only thing in great condition in my interior, so I don't see it coming out.

If you're careful you can peel it back just enough to put the plates in. You don't have to weld them in, just drill a small hole to either side of the belt bolt hole and rivet it in place.

A 1/4 inch plate behind there is all Ford used - with a small clip to hold it in place if the bolt is not there.

The clip is not even necessary if the bolt is in with a correct washer.
