Morris 3 Point Seat Belts

Guys, Who is running Morris 3 Point Seat Belts. There is a post just recently that showed the high dollar 69 Camaro for sale. This car has the Morris 3 point seat belts.

I would like to know if there was any installation issues before I order them.
I removed my upper belt as it was always falling out of the retainer spring above the roof line.

They look safer than my lap belts and best thing about them , is there is only one buckle for this lap/shoulder belt set up.

The belts can be viewed here. https://www.morrisclassic.com/collec...maro-seatbelts

Thank you John for leading me to this link.

Re: Morris 3 Point Seat Belts

I have them and like them. They install easily with the only caution being the tight space between the seat and the door. But the space is adequate.

The only thing I dislike is the distance I have to reach back to grab the latch and pull it around me. I remain pretty limber so it is really just a short term annoyance and the benefits of the belt outweigh the concern. Some type of hook attached to the seatback to catch the belt when unbuckled would be handy.

Re: Morris 3 Point Seat Belts

Thank you Andrew. Your complaint was one reason why I left the roof belt off when I replace the headliner.
As for having to reach behind me to grasp the belt, it may not be a problem, since I have relocated the seats back via seat relocation rails.

The clearance between the door and belt was another issue.

Forgot to ask, Since I have a new headliner, I don't know just where the two anchoring bolt holes are.

Do you recall if the holes are in front of the clothes hanger or behind?
Also, did you replace the rear seats belts also?

Thanks again.

Don

Thanks, But it makes sense for the holes to be in front of the clothes hook.

Re: Morris 3 Point Seat Belts

John's photo will probably be the most helpful but this evening I could perhaps take a photo the belt mounted at the headliner area. Once you now the general location you can probable find the holes with a needle with minimal damage to the headliner material.

You can feel the holes with your finger if you know where to look. No reason to poke holes.

Attachment 163738
So the first bolt hole is 4" behind the coat hook. I was thinking the opposite as the belt would be pushing clothes some, not that it matters.
I haven't used that hook ever since I tried to run away from home a year after I got the car.

I will probably just order the front seat belts as no one ever rides in back except maybe a grandson.

Thanks again.

Re: Morris 3 Point Seat Belts

There is about an 1/8 " clearance between the reel , seat & door.

The easiest way to reach the male buckle is to slide your left hand to your side and
grasp the seat belt webbing , pull your arm over to your chest & grasp the male buckle
with your right hand and click it into the female end. This eliminates the need to twist
your shoulder and reach the seat belt buckle.

If anyone has questions just call us.
Thx, Billy MCC

It is as you were thinking. About 4" in front of the coat hook.

Re: Morris 3 Point Seat Belts

I will be ordering your front 3 point sets shortly. I noticed you have about the same thing for the rear which for me , I hardly take any passenger in the back seat and by the time my grandson gets older he will be riding shotgun with my son.

I have them they are great but I agree reaching back is a bit tough on an old guy--

Re: Morris 3 Point Seat Belts

One thing I forgot to ask you guys that have these seat belts, did all the trim, plastic covers etc, come colored to match the belt material?
