Seat Belts

Are the front seat belts the same in a 69 bay and a 78 bay? A guy on Craigslist has some from a 78 that I would be interested in getting.

They are different but should work if they come with the receptacle ends to match. The 78 belts are the retractable type which some people like better.

True, but since seat belts are such a critical safety item, you really out to consider shelling out for new ones. Old ones weaken with repeated use and the intense UV we get here in the southwest.
