Those have to be part of your front seat belts. I've seen a few Beetles with that strange setup for the buckles.
Thanks Wayne for the info. the car had no seat belts when I bought it so I just couldn't figure it out. Neal
Yes, I agree with Wayne...they look like they unclip the seatbelts...very unusual... [maybe before push buttons were invented] lol
wow, those are strange looking. I have a 71 SB and there wasn't anything like that in mine. (but perhaps someone took them out a long time ago, maybe?
Thanks everyone for the help in solving the mystery. Neal
If what I’m seeing is right, those are made of mild steel with something that looks like an “alignment” fork coming from the top, one pin each side? If so I had one back “in the day” It used the seatbelt mounting bolts, you were supposed to sandwich them between the bottom of the belt mount and the spline. It held an aftermarket arm rest between the seats that opened to hold cassette tapes in it. The back end of it just straddled the spline at the foot of the back seat, some of them used a small self tapping screw on each side. I think my belts had a nylon type strap with a steel ring at the bottom, but that's been a few nights sleep ago.
Thanks Sleepwalker. Very interesting. Probably be best just to go with seatbelts now don't you think? Neal
Ohhh yeah! Belts all the way. If you are looking for OEM Used on EBay might be a thought. Mid America Motorsports has some nice aftermarket ones available as well.
