    1966 3-point seat belt hardware?

    I am trying to install a brand new set of seat belts in a 1966. The car came to me in boxes (donít ask) so I have no idea what is supposed to be here and what is just junk that got thrown in the box over the years. The first photo shows all the hardware that I was given (not sure why theyíre upside down). The second shows the bolt that was installed on the seat belt when I was given the project. This black bolt is too large for the hole (M8 x 1.25). One of the chrome bolts is the right thread, but seems way too short. If I have to order new parts, thatís fine, I just need to know what I need.

    Thanks!!!

    None of those bolts are appropriate for a 66. That stuff came from a much later car. A picture if the seat belt and the receivers would help with the ID.

    Thanks for the reply Jim. The belts I have are from Seatbelt Planet. One end has the lobster claw clip that goes to the eyebolt on the floor. The other end is supposed to bolt by the back seat. I’ve seen some images that look like they have a Frankenstein bolt that requires a lobster clip, but if I can use these belts I’d like to go that route.Name:  IMG_0026.jpg
