    Dan,

    Interesting tid bit - your car is a DSO (Dealer Special Order) Car - looks like it was for Factory Seat Belts - Far fewer of those than AC FYI. If it still has them keep them! Even if it is in a box in the trunk and you hook more modern belts to the attachment brackets. A NOS set on eBay will run you between 400-800 bucks last time I looked...
