    can anyone tell me what color blue the seat belts were on the 69 decor dark blue/light blue interior? Also would it have had the 3 point shoulder or the lap belt. It was a December 68 production car. There is a threaded hole in the roof just above the post so I'm thinking it was originally shoulder. When I bought the car it had been redone in white upholstery but had very dark blue lap seat belts. Much darker than the 2 tone blue decor interior that came originally.

    Coat hanger was above the post on my car or that is what it looked like. Their is a bracket that bolts to the truss near A pillar and the visor hinge. I might be wrong but think that is rite. One of the other guy's will correct me if I am wrong.

    Coat hanger makes sense. So maybe I have just a lap belt as standard

    Yea they make a kit for track has to have three point belt. I don't know if you can find the holes near the wind shield trim and visor. I think if you type in the search box you might find a picture or two. I think they came with just the lap belt in 69. Look into classic they have seat belt's in color. You said the interior was light blue. I would think the belt would match it or close. But never know might have had just black or a dark blue. Give this awhile and see who else has an idea's.

    Shoulder harnesses became mandatory on January 1, 1968. Your '69 RR came with lap belts and a separate shoulder belt that stores up above the windows.

    That car was featured in Hot Rod Magazine back in 2015. Satellite turned into a modernized A12 Clone. He built it the way he wanted it. I was just looking for something that showed the shoulder belt clearly and that pic came up.
