68 Shoulder Harness
« on: May 02, 2023, 05:08:56 PM »
 Thank you in advance.  I have a Std interior, black seat belt, w/buckle that shows a model# 277. Dated 28th wk of 68. Researching CRG I thought it was a front shoulder harness for coupe, but length of belt measures approx. 21”. Would this be a rear shoulder belt or maybe for a convertible?  Any assistance is appreciated.

Have you seen this report?

Scroll down and it lists the belt numbers and applications.

From the picture you posted it looks like the belt has been cut. Is it frayed at the end?

Yes, I had looked at that report prior to posting, and the reason I questioned the length.
I never thought of it being cut off. Good catch. I will compare it to some other belts.
Sometimes it just takes a different view. Thanks for the look.

The webbing should look like this…both sides.

Thanks that may be helpful. I was looking for my original 13A69 front std. seat belts when I came across this belt.

Since we’re on the topic of seat belts. My research is not coming up with a # 1902
69 Camaro (716- Blue) Deluxe Seat belts. 2-1952 - Front Lap, 1-1914 - Front shoulder, 2-1902 shown with small buckle. Is this rear shoulder belts…?. Dated early 69. (34th wk, 68). Would like to determine RPO for this set. The only cover I have, had both a 1952 and 1902 together if that helps.

Did you click on the link that Bryon (bcmiller) posted above?  Send a full size photo and I will try to post it as your photo is too hard to see due to size.

69 Deluxe
1907 - Front lap
1952 - Front shoulder
1914 - Rear lap (early)
TBD - Rear Shoulder



I THOUGHT 1902 was deluxe rear shoulder but don't quote me.

Yes, I checked the CRG link first thing. It shows TBD for rear shoulder belt. Reading some of the other post makes me think rear shoulder belts.
Looking at this thread, I probably should have started a new one. I will try to upload a full size pic.
