Seatbelts for Classic Cars
Everybody wears seatbelts now, if you don’t you’ll get busted. It’s hard to imagine a time when you didn’t have to wear seatbelts. Well guess what, before 1965 the big car companies like Ford, Chevy, BMW, etc. we’re not required to have seatbelts, they were optional. Everyone grew up sliding back and forth in the back seat of Mom and Dad’s station wagon, it was the norm. Obviously seatbelts work. They’ve saved millions of lives and no one would drive without them but what about all those classic cars and trucks that are still on the road today? You go to Vintage Car Radio and retro fit your ride with modern seatbelts!

Muscle cars and hot rods are meant to be driven fast and in anger. There’s nothing like stomping on the go pedal of your big block Camaro, old 911 or Cobra Mustang, tearing down the drag strip or road course, sliding sideways and having way too much fun. But what happens if you push it too far? Forget about the damage to your car, steel can be replaced but you can’t. It’s probably time for a five point racing harness. Vintage Car Radio sells exactly what you need to keep you safe. Not only will you be more likely to survive a crash, you’ll also be able to drive better. If you don’t have a good seatbelt or racing harness, you’ll be moving all over your seat because of the g’s pulled when accelerating, decelerating or cornering. If you stay in one spot securely you can steer better, brake better and be in control better with a five point harness from Vintage Car Radio.
Vintage Car Radio has the original seat belt style, the lap belt for most major manufactures. The lap belt is just that, it goes right across your lap. It’s the minimum safety requirement for your old hot rod or classic. It’s easy to install, only minor drilling required to mount the belts.
Everyone knows that the older you get, sometimes you get bigger in the midsection and then the seatbelt gets a little tight. So what do you do? You get a seatbelt extender! The 12-inch belt extender allows you to extend the male belt end of your seat belt system by 12 inches. Another words, more room for your big belly. You get one 12-inch extension in black webbing, and 1/2" bolt (Grade 5), 1/2" nut (Grade 5) and a lock washer. Now you can breathe again.
When you bolt in your new belts, you don’t want to use some cheap bolts. This is your life on the line, so you can go to Vintage Car Radio for one of their Advanced or Basic shoulder belt bolt kit. Comes with everything you need to mount your belts with quality hardware. Don’t cheap out on this part!
