Seat Belts
#1
OK guys, wondering if I am seeing things in my 71 MACH 1. First off, the interior color is Ginger. Now the interesting part. The front belts, shoulder and lap are black and look to be perhaps replaced (not too sure). The rear belts are Ginger or parchment or something that looks close to Ginger, these appear stock as when I took them off some sound deading material (the tar mat material) was also over and around the attachment anchors. My question is this, from all the interior MACH1 photos I have even seen the rear and front belts either match or are black, even for colored interiors. What is the correct interior belt color/layout?

Thanks,

BDK

front and rear would have matched from the factory

Most cars had standard black belts
Any car could be ordered with deluxe interior color belts

Thanks Don and that's what it states on the Marti. So I guess front and rear would both have been Ginger/Parchment.....looks like someone must have swapped out the front belts to black then.....

Appreciate the help Don....

FWIW, my 71 has a ginger interior -- standard, not deluxe, not Mach 1 -- with brown plaid seats and all my belts are black. They are original.

Plaid seats
What does the Marti report say / call them ?

I don't have a Marti report. The original purchase agreement (hand written by the sales person) says it came with the "decor group". I called the seats "plaid". That's probably not the official name. Here's a pic:

Those are deluxe cloth seats - as Don noted - pretty rare. A friend of mine has a 73 yellow convertible with the same interior.

Thanks for the info! When I first saw the car I kind of grimaced at the seats, but I've really grown to like them.
