    Default Need 73 3point seat belts for my 72 w/ lap belts

    I would like to get some '73 3 point stock seat belts for my '72 240z...in at least OK condition. I'm in Portland, Oregon, USA. Only a set will do.

    Cross posted to parts wanted.

    Thanks in advance for reading my post.

    I have the shoulder belts out of a 73 if you need them. I also have a complete set of 3 point stock seat belts from a 74 (with retractable shoulder belts attached to the retractable lap belts).
    Just let me know.

    Hey, thanks Dr. Rich, I'm looking for the retractables that the retractable mounts in the floor behind the seats.

    Let me know if that's how the 74s are...I was thinking those retracts mount by the rear window....

    I just installed some retractable belts in my 72 z. You can not use a retractable lap belt out of any other z except maybe a 2+2. The floor well is to small for 260/280 lap belts.

    The way to do it is get a set of 280 belts and drill out the rivet that connects the shoulder belt to the clip. Then you have a 72 lap belt with a 280 retractable shoulder harness. Bolt them together with a grade 8 bolt and you are good to go.

    i was under the impression that the '3 point retractables' out of 73 are a direct bolt in, with no mods...that's what I'm looking for. I'll just keep the non retrac 72 laps until I find the 73s.

    You're right, You CAN use a seat belt set from a 1973 240Z in a 1972 240Z. It will fit in the pocket with absolutely no problem. No mods required.

    I'm not sure if 1974 belts would fit the pocket.

    That's why I am willing to sell them, as they won't fit in my '73 pockets. They do require bigger pockets, so that's why I didn't use them. I have come to grips with fact that I can't use 3 point retracts without a great deal of work...

    Dr Rich,

    Thanks for the suggestion but I'm going to wait for 73 belts. Thanks.
