  • Baby capsule seat for lap belt Studebakers??

    Hi guys,
    my wife was asking, does anybody know of a baby seat that will work with Studebaker Lap belts ? The ones that are on the market over here in the UK work with a 3 point belt. Currently she is just over the 4 month mark.

    Any child of mine will only come home from the hospital in one of our Studebakers. So I hope this child was not the milkmans, otherwise it will be coming home in the milk cart !!!

    Have any of you people out there, who take your babies out in your Studebakers, that have lap seat belts, know of a brand of seat that will work for me and my desire to drive Studebakers, weather they are practical or not ???

    Even once baby grows up a bit we will still need a baby seat that can transfer between my cars. I do have seat belts in some of my 1930's cars.

    I sure dont hope that I have to sell all my Studebakers and finally 'grow up' for a change, when baby arrives...... Well that would be a stupid thought.

    Anyway, a couple of makes and pointers would be of great assistance to us.

    Thanks guys for your help

    Greg,

    I had a car seat that I used in the back of my GT Hawk a number of times, but I think we may have passed it on. It was for a larger child and had two holes down low in the back that allowed the seat belt to pass through to cinch it down. The only problem was that when properly tightened it drew the buckle up behind the seat, making it almost impossible to release.

    I will look tonight to see if we still have it, but you may want to check to see if Gerry makes one you can use.

    P.S. Was this a result of your European trip earlier this summer?

        Thanks Gary,
        no Kristine was pregnant before we left, which was a bit of a bummer as Spain and France are great places to drink wine - a lot.

            Congratulations on the future addition...
            Of all your cars, wouldn't your 88 Avanti have the most modern seatbelt (and possibly the most seat-compatable) system?

                Greg,

                After thinking about this, you need more of a combination infant carrier/car seat. If my memory serves me correctly, these are normally affixed using a lap belt (so designed so the child rides in the middle of the car). The base is belted in (be sure to kneel on it when installing it get it tight) and the carrier (with its own harness system) then attaches to the base. Here is a picture:

                I found this on the Gerry website, but your best bet would be to go to your local baby store. While I realize that may be a frightening thought, at least you can get an idea of what is available and meets the local safety standards. At least here, the local fire department will check the installation to be sure it is correct and the belt tight.

                Good luck!
