I have seen some shoulder mounts for the mid fifties trucks. Ours shouldn't be to different but have any of my fridge friends installed the three point seat belts. If you have, could you share pictures of your shoulder and retractor mounts. I just received the belts and We are going to set the old seat back in the cab today and see where might be the best spot to mount the retractor and the high point. I plan to use the original mount for the buckle end. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
PS. I have the small back window!
I am going to be installing seats plus the belts out of a Explorer in my 60. This includes the shoulder belts. I have removed all the mounting points and cut them from the Explorer and will be welding parts in over the next few months. I will shoot some pictures as I do this.

Cparks; Thanks and please do post pictures when you finish. That way we can provide ideas for others.
Here is what I came up with after reading posts from our previous/sister forum!
These are 16 gage and welded to the existing braces, door and window frames. The lap and buckle mounts will bolt through the floor under which there is a very beefy plate that runs the width of the cab behind the seat. I feel confident that this system will secure our carcasses to the interior of the wreckage.
After we Decide on a new seat and determine the correct height, Debbie is a lot shorter then me. I will mount these plates behind the new panels!
