I believe that to be the case in Illinois as well. Pre-1964 (I believe)
vehicles are not required to have belts _installed_; but if they are there
you'd better have them in use if stopped!

Same here in Illinois when my brother had a street legal "dune buggy". He
got stopped for no windshiled and the officer called in to verify when my
brother told him they weren't required. He came back writing a ticket for
no wipers ... that's when my brother pointed out the old manual wiper from a
Model T mounted to the bottom of the front roll bar!
