There is a place called Pony Car Concepts and Restoration in Orange, Ca that sells a kit to install new 3 point belts in classic Mustangs. The ad says for 64 1/2-67, but they may be able to be adjusted to fit '68's. The phone number for them is 714-639-4457. I don't know of any donor cars that'll fit, but I'm sure there is something that'll be a close enough fit.

Talked to them about a year ago. Belts for a 68 are not in their plan. Can't remember all the problem but they did have a reson-fitment. Did Deja Blu on the M&M tech pages do a feature on this?

I put three point belts in wvcat from southern street rods, they are around 45.99 per person. I love them!!! Having modern belts in an old car is cool and alot safer, after all I "haul" my wife and kids around in my car and even on trips. You can see the belts in my page. There is also a link in the tech articles at the bottom of the page.
Good Luck
John

I now own Stef's Deja. It has 3 point belts, but the upper mount is at the top of the door opening. Not sure if it will stay this way as it is a wierd angle.
Since you ask about donner vehicles, here is a page for putting junk yard parts in a 67,

I put a Pony Car Concepts rig in my '70. It's pretty slick. Putting in a 3-point rig is easy in a coupe or fastback that has the shoulder-harnesses strapped along the upper side of the roof.

You can also use late-model Mustang belts; just use good, US-sized fasteners in place of the metric. Also check out this place:
http://www.julianos.com/
for reinforced L-brackets and anchor-plates to install the retractor mechanism (I'm using their anchor-plates because they strike me as much safer than a nut/bolt/big-washer rig).

I put 3 point belts in my 65 conv. i didnt like the idea of my forehead saying hi to the steering wheel. pretty simple set up. drilled a hole through the c pillar and through the floor board. about an hour and a few beers for both sides.
