1977 F250 Lap Belts

I have a 1977 F-250 Highboy (somewhat) that just had lap belts. I've been looking and looking, can't find what the originals look like or where to get a set. LMC and other places seem to just have a universal set. Did they have a retractor from the factory? Where was the male side, and female side of the seatbelt?

Thanks,
Tobin

They have two sections, replacement and repair. Nice to work with.

Thanks, I was looking at their stuff but will have to give them a call since they don't have any lap belts listed except for the center seat.

So it does have retractable male ends on the outboard side! Do you have any pictures? That is what I needed to know. Now to find a set!

Well, I would if I could but I have a 12 valve Cummins diesel in mine. No reason to have any vacuum lines on your air cleaner, I would get rid of that.

My 73 F100 is lap belt only. The female sides are on the bench, not retractable. The male side is located on the sides of the seat and retract about a foot. I can take a picture later if you need one.

Perfect, exactly what I need. A couple pictures would be great if you could.

Thanks!

No seat belt retractors with lap seat belts.

1967/75 F100/350, 1976/77 F250 4WD (High Boys): Lap seat belts were standard equipment, shoulder straps were optional.

With shoulder straps, the lap belts have two buckles. One for the tongue of the lap belt, another for the tongue of the separate shoulder strap.

The separate shoulder straps attached to the upper right & left corners of the cab, once the rubber plugs were removed. See 1973/75 pic below.
