  • Interior: Seat belts.

    I want to put retractors on the lap belts from Studebaker Int. Has anyone done this, and what do you recommend?

    Years ago, I used the spring loaded, roll up type that installs on the webbing of lap belts. They worked fine. Be sure that the belts are fully extended when in use.

      I believe they were called "Roll-a-Belts" & if memory serves me were made by Borg-Warner. Occasionally I see them in the junk yards yet but getting fewer & further between.

        You can buy the roll-a-belt retractors from LateGreatChevy.com. They carry them new. I bought a set from them for the rear seat belts in my Avanti.

            I found them on a website from Andover Restraints, Inc. They are listed as "'50's and '60's style." Thanks for the suggestion.

              Just be a bit careful when you install them...if your fingers slip those things can bite you quick.
