I didn't know seat belts were that expensive but I can't say that I have seen any NOS in a while.

Wow! Quite a box of gold!
And yes... Those NOS belts are expensive. Why? The same belts fit Corvettes! eye rolling smiley
I saw the 62 - 63 Chevrolet authorized seatbelt, USED buckle's only on FleaBay bid up to $400!

Irvin or Irving, as misspelled by their company secretary... parachute company, made many of the first seat belts offered in the day.

Starting in 1965 GM began using "generic" belt buckles across many of their divisions for the lower dollar car. The standard belt buckle was plastic, and the belt with the better looking buckle was optional at extra cost. The optional buckle had the Fischer Body emblem on it.
The large satin buckle with the Fischer Body emblem in the center is 1967 vintage, the chrome buckle with the small Fischer Body emblem is 1966, and the green plastic buckle was the standard buckle for many years. I never will profess to know all about seat belts, because there are so many facts about them that are only known by those that are "experts" in their particular year cars. As an example, when looking for seat belts for my 1962 Chevrolet BelAir, I learned that there are 3 or 4 different variations that were used. Unless you are the owner of a Bloomington Gold Corvette, I seriously doubt that you would be interested in what those variations are, and would be satisfied in having a period correct belt for your car.

The large polished aluminum buckle with the large Chevrolet Logo in the center is a 1962 / 1963 Blue Belt. Also notice that the attachment to the car is a 2 piece device that goes into an eye bold at the floor, and it has an extremely long blue vinyl material protector that slides over the attachment hardware after installation. One of the variations of this design belt is that prior to the color coordinated vinyl protector, all the belts used a black vinyl protector.
The painted beige buckle is a 1964 belt, and uses a dime sized Chevrolet bowtie in the center. The attachment to the floor has been refined, and now uses a bolt to retain it, and has a small vinyl boot that goes over the end to finish the installation.

I believe the webbing on the 63 is different from other years also.

It very well might be. That is one of the things that kept changing during production years. It was probably more of a supply issue than anything else.
