One aspect of the resto-mod of my '65 fastback is to try and bring passenger safety up to modern specs. My original plan was to add a two (or four) point roll bar and attach a modern inertia reel seatbelt system. I'd throw in a basic four-point harness, but I'd like to create more of a modern factory esthetic without jumping straight to "racetrack extreme".

Has anyone successfully done this and had it turn out to be an attractive install? I probably won't dive deep into figuring this particular install out until I go hands on with that part of the interior. I'm hoping to catch some insight from anyone who's been through the trial & error with this.

When the time comes, if it doesn't look like I'll be able to manage a clean install then I'll probably throw in the Shelby style, roll br mounted restraints. I'd rather take the extra steps and go with the modern inertia reel idea though. Anyone seen this done?

Rob,

Check this out.

Edit {That site no longer works... Maybe someone else has a link to seatbelt installations?}

On a '65-'67 you'll have to weld in the upper attaching point above the headliner. Others have welded in a threaded peice to the top of the door post. Good luck,

Steph's home page is http://home.pacifier.com/~dnstoys/mustang.htm
She installed a roll bar in a 68 to hang seat belts from and doesn't like the look so she is going to a plan B. Also check out http://www.mustangsafety.com/
and for ideas that work in a Falcon, check out http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Track/1943/

Try Pony car Sales & service 714-639-4457 They market a 3 point system, that Jim Smart, of M & Fords put in a 65 Mustang. It looks like a good installation.
