    My '68 RR (build date 22 Mar 68) has the shoulder belts stored above the drivers and passengers doors. There is a metal receiver for the seat belt buckle as part of the visor attachment. I believe originally there was an elastic strap with a snap to store the folded part of the belt. Anyone have a photo of it or maybe it's reproduced somewhere.
    Any thoughts?

    There's a member on here or on Moparts that can replace those for you. Price is reasonable and turnaround is fast. Unfortunately I don't remember his name but he usually has sets of restored belts for sale on Moparts so just contact him that way.

    I'm getting old and sometimes dreams and reality get confused, but didn't they have what looked like a large paperclip coming out of the headliner to hold the belts up!

      in '70 when they realized the '69 female buckle was in the way of the visor and hurt when it unlatched and swung down. '70 they swapped belt ends with the shoulder becoming the male buckle.
