I like my teeth the way they are & my dental plan isn't really the best where I work so I want to install 3 points seat belts on the two front seats at least. My ford 67 shop manual describs this as an option but the top attachement seems to be on the side of the back seats for convertibles which doesn't look great. So.....

1-Is that really where it was attached ?
2-Is this original set up still being sold ?
3-I have heard of aftermarket versions but where do they attach on the inside (top buckle)
4-Subsidary question: I think that the 67 cougar had head rest on the front seat (unless it was 68 may be) was that available on 67 stang too ?

Pierre,
Can't speak on the '67 but in the 68 the 3 point seat belts are two belts..one for the waits and a second which goes over the shoulder..

The head rest in 68 were just and add-on not the good seats in 69

check these out for an excellent project and upgrade.

Just to muddy the waters ... I have a set of 68 seats with head rests that look original in every way, and also match up with a pic in Osborn's. They are different from 69 head rests, that's true. I've never seen another set of 68 head rests, but I have seen several sets of 69 head rests, and the ones on my 68 are far better. This completely goes against conventional wisdom, I know

I know, its not a 67,
But my 68 has both original headrests and the 2 seat belts. I think they are original but im not an expert on this stuff. The shoulder belt mounts to the roof above the door in my coupe. The belt has a neat little storage system, it hooks over a little piece of wire and loops back on itself plugging in to its own mounting point when its not in use. That way they dont need to install the inertia-reel thingy, you adjust it to your girth, and plug it in. It does make it a chore though becuase my way you have 2 belts to fix. I mostly drive with just the lap belt on.

I believe the head rests were dealer installed options on the '67s. They had to rods which bolted to the back of the seat.
