I'm looking for both R & L front seat belt retractors from say 1966-69?...used in various Ford or Merc models with that option.

I'm putting these in a '64 Gal 2dr and my belts are the corporate blue, although I'd call it more like 'electric blue' (they lean a little turquoise). Doing just some eye-balling, it looks a '64 latch oughta fit those tongues. If you only have an entire set, I may consider?

Got something you wanna part with, recoils well, plastic housings aren't cracked, decent webbing, etc ...please PM me, thanks!

No prob, and thanks for trying. :)

I'm on there all day (I sell there) and have a saved search that e-mails me when a new seat belt item shows up - sometimes it's a bit too much info tho, lol.

Still looking, thanks!

I seek right & left front seat belt retractors from say 1966-69?...used in various Ford or Merc models with the retractor option.

I'm putting these in a '64 Gal 2dr, belts are blue, although I'd call it more like 'electric blue' (they lean a little turquoise). For now I'm just sticking with a 2-point harness (lap belt). If you have an entire set (inboard and outboard front belts) -to get the colors and latch parts same-same, that's fine..... as I may have to do that.

Got something you wanna part with, recoils well, plastic housings aren't cracked, decent webbing, etc ...please PM me, thanks!

This image is of a 1969 set w/shoulder harness, but the retractor is really close to what I seek.

The '66 retractor mounts differently than the '67. You may want to check that out, esp if you are using the stock mounting hole.

Thanks for your input....yep....know what ya mean, lol.

As soon as I find something (to gain a "starting point"), I can do said checking that you mention. These are going in a '64, so I have 'wiggle room'. Basically I'm looking for what is shown in the pic, and if the tongue doesn't mate with my '64 latch, I'll have to install both sides, no sweat. The aftermarket doesn't make that blue (yet), and their retractors just don't look 'right', hence why I am trying for used ones. ...just a fun project to spiff my old belts up, lol.

Norm: I pulled these retractors years ago, if i recall out of a 66, but not positive.
they have very little markings on them -on the chrome anchor out the bottom of the body- #' AB4 with an H
on the seat belt webbing a little patch says- FOMOCO- Decor Metal Products. They are a beige in color, different from your pic, where the belt comes out of the base, it forms to the size of the webbing width
I will pm you with my email if you want a pics
