: 1970 Eldorado rear shoulder seat belts option?

06-13-13, 07:28 PM
It seems that the 1970 Eldorado had, besides the rear hip belts, also shoulder seat belts for the rear seat as an option?
Does anyone have a picture of those? I would like to check if I can install them and I need to know where I could attach them. I hope they are the same as the shoulder seat belts in the front (attached to the roof), because you can still get them new.

They were similar to the front shoulder belts. I believe they mounted to the C pillar.

Thanks. That would make sense. But a picture of the exact location would be helpful.

This is in my Fisher Body 1970 Service Manual. In the "Seats" section on page 15-88, it covers rear shoulder straps for all styles except convertibles and station wagons. Eldorado is "View D".

My Eldo doesn't have them, so this is as close to an actual photo as I can get. Hope it helps!

I 'only' have a shop manual. Indeed a service manual comes in handy sometimes too. That is a real help. I appreciate that greatly!
