Looking for the following
#1
Looking for all three vents like this for a '71 with A/C. The two side and centre vents in really nice shape. I would like to get them with the housings intact and if possible the front dash pieces that they sit in (this may only apply to the side vents, cant recall the centre vent set up at this time).

I also need the small circular "seat belt" light housing that slides into this hole and you then slide in the light bulb. The chrome must be really nice and not flaking.

I still need an underbody convertible structural plate that covers the driveshaft behind the transmission, if someone has a nice one that is not beat up (crud and surface rust no problem as I will blast it anyway), let me know.

As I move into the restoration of the interior on this car, the real fun is just beginning... Cheers.

Hi!
Seat Belt light is really hard to come by. Mine is cracked and the bezel is gone. I am in search of one myself. And the bottom plate as well. Good luck!

Seat belt light will be a challenge for sure. They are made out of unobtanium.

I think the bottom plate is available aftermarket. If you want an original one I would be willing to swap mine out with an aftermarket. My car is so far gone from original it doesn't matter. Wink PM me and we can talk. I just put mine back on and I don't remember anything particularly wrong with it. No rust (Arizona).

Don, let me know what you have and send me an e-mail when you have a moment. BTW, Still waiting to hear back from you on the convertible cross member plate???

Looks like I will have to work with my existing "belt" light for now, it is all there, just that the faux chrome had worn off. I can paint it for now, such a small piece will be hard to notice. It's not like I am going thoroughbred...

What is the "plate" that someone brought up in this thread, don't think I need that...

Funny thing too is where your seat belt light goes you have a hole with 2 notches there whereas mine is just round, no notches. BUT, on my dash the hole where the convertible top switch goes has the 2 notches. Weird or reversed or what? By the way, my dash was not hacked by me!

Hmmm, hard to tell from your picture, but I am pretty sure that the convertible top switch was always located on the outside of the dash, nearest the door... Not sure what you mean by notches, pretty round hole in general. I just put my old "belt" light switch in for the time being...

The convertible top switch is located in the same place that the rear defrost switch.

Ignore my many extra aftermarket switches!! (electric fan, aux horn and power antenna because someone will ask! Wink )

Ken, unfortunately the seat belt lamp is another one of those 71-73 "Unicorn" parts. The lamp was not a stand alone option, but was included in the 71 Deluxe Seat Belt option (standard on the vert) and 72's built up until 12-1-71.
I know in the interim you have reinstalled your original lamp, but I would suggest contacting Midlife to see if he might have any decent lamps within his wire harness inventory. If you perform any online searches use (D1ZZ-10C876-A) if searching by part number. Hopefully one will show up one day. If I happen to find one I'll defiantly let you know!

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
