Hi guys. I know that 70-72 Chevelles and Montes haad seat belt retention devices (for lack of a better term). Did 69 Chevelles have these also? If so, who makes them, Would the 70-72 ones be correct? Thanks- Jason
My 69 originally came with bench seats, and the car had both the lap belt and the shoulder harness. Both are still there, however the female end for the shoulder harness is in a box now. The bench was replaced with SS buckets and console, and there are no retainers of any kind that I can see on it.
My 69 has the original buckets and automatic console.
The holders on the console are chrome metal U shaped brackets that look like the male end of a seat belt, one on each side. The female end of the belt slips over them (just like buckling up except you don't have to push the button to release).
I *think* the 70 - 72 are black plastic cup type holders.
Are these seat belt holders on all 69's with a console??? Mine does not have them and I was wondering if I should get them. I have a 69 Malibu Conv. If they are supposed to be there do you have the number for "The Muscle Factory"?? I have never seen them on any car before. Nor have I seen them in any catalog.
My 2c for what's it's worth: I don't know if the 70-72 ones are the same, but I just came back from the Super Chevy show in Montgomery, AL and was looking specifically at 72s w/ consoles and I saw the plastic seat belt holders attached to the side of the console. I have a 72 ElCamino that I'm planning on converting to buckets/console. I bought buckets and console from salvage yard about a year ago when I was visiting family in Phoenix. I wondered what the couple of holes in the side of the console were for and now I know. I haven't checked the factory assy. manual or anything as I'm a few months away from my conversion.
