Hey everybody. I'm looking for a bolt in harness Bar for a 66 Corvair. There's a few options out there but I don't know if they will fit the Corvair or not. Do you have any suggestions? The ones I see online Mount to wear the shoulder part of the seat belt would be but of course is 66 Corvair doesn't seem to have that or am I missing something. Thanks in advance guys preciate it.

I started to reply yesterday but thought someone would have better information.

It seems to me that sometime during the 66 year production they began installing an extra provision along the outer roof for a shoulder belt, even though the belt wasn't provided yet. It was just a threaded hole with I suppose a welded nut.

If you're looking for a side to side bar for competition belts I don't have any information.

It was sometime in the beginning of the 1966 calendar year when the Fed regs changed. Its in the same location as later cars and is pretty far back. It had that separate shoulder belt bolted to it and clipped to the ceiling.
On my 69 I don't think it had ever been used. Got a set of 3-pt retractable belts from Morris Classic that bolt to the original mounting points. They used a long drop strap on that ceiling bolt to effectively lower the shoulder mount.

I've seen people run the harness strap back and bolt it under the rear seat cushion using those seat belt points. I haven't seen a bar in a Corvair without it also being a roll bar.
