    1967 S front seat belt placement?

    I installed sport seats and the factory seat belts in my 911S.

    for mounting the seat belts, would the male be mounted to the left next to the door for the drivers side? Or would the female be mounted to the left of drivers side?

    Simple two point lap or three point shoulder???

    As belts were a dealer installed option in '67 simple lap belts were most likely installed to the customer's preference, male/female, inside/outside.

    Three points can only go one way as the belt "triangle" has to be mounted to the outside and the female receptacle is thusly outside: driver's left, passenger's right.

    Hopefully you are NOT using the original mounting points for the lap straps. They are mounted too high on the rear vertical kick panel for the correct safe placement across the lap. There are well documented internal injuries from lap belts mounted too high. There were angle brackets used in later model years that fit under the rear seat rail mounts that allow mounting the lap belts at the safe angle.....I think Sierra Madre actually sells them. There in my '67S.

    2 point lap belts.

    Used correct mounting eyes screwed into factory locations.

    I find it comfortable in the sport seats.
    Chances are, if i ever had an impact in this little vintage car the seat belts wont do much to save me from a heavy modern car.
