really want period seat belts, I'd contact Jerry LaBant (sp?) at 
Liverpool Motorworks in Liverpool, PA. He used to run off to England 
every 6 mo or so and get stuff. I picked up NOS three point seat belts 
for my '67 B from him at a reasonable price. I don't have a phone 
number, but you should be able to find it.
