    Life is good in SB. I do have a custom modified harness bar for 69 to 71 cars in my hot rod. I can send it to you but will need it back in a week or so. The weltmeister, you can keep for as long as you like.

    Jim,

    good info on the harness bar.
    I m looking for such a bar for an 11/71 here in Germany. Shipping from US will nearly double the price of the bar.

    Refering to the introduction of the lowered mounting point from 11/71 on, the early MY72 (8-10/71) should use the early bar, or?
    02.11.71 seat belt mounting point on door lock post (coupe) lowered 90mm


    How to judge if it is -72 one or the later versions. Is there a number engraved?

    BR from Stuttgart

    Didn’t the lowered shoulder harness bolts happen at the 72 year model change? I don’t know why the makers of harness bars don’t just make them adjustable to fit both early and late models. The length isn’t that much different.

    Regards

    Jim

    Hi Jim,

    the door post with the lowered shoulder harness bolts were introduced during Nov 1971.
    Any chance to measure your -71 version?

    The later one, that I need, should be little longer.

    Here's what I did: Harbor Freight ratcheting cargo bar, quick fabbed aluminum mount and because the cargo bar rotates freely, a tripod to brace the ratchet handle. A bit Rube Goldberg, but worked perfectly.

    Big thank you to 68911+1 for the cargo bar tip!

    Here is a picture of my 71. I find it interesting that the list suggests that early production 72s had the seat belt bolts up high like mine. I kind of doubt that. Yes, you car should have a slightly longer harness bar than mine. The harness bars that are currently available, all would fit your car and not mine.

    Here's mine. If your 72 is the same, I stand corrected. You need the shorter bar and you will have to make it as I don't think any of the manufacturers actually make a bar to fit. I shortened my Brey Krauss Racing bar about 24mm to make it fit(shown in the picture).

    Regards

    Jim

    I measure the same distance in two early (8/12/71+ 11/1/71), Jim.
