Question Shoulder Straps

Can anyone shed some light on whether all '68 CS mustangs should have shoulder straps with the seat belt set.

I had a set of black belts from a '67 in mine but I'm changing back to original Ivy Gold interior.

Thanks for you help in advance!

I'm 99% sure of this, so someone can feel free to correct me, but my understanding is that they all had them because it was a new government mandated safety feature for 1968.

Corect. '68's had/have shoulder harnesses (except convertibles).

Great - thanks. '68 must have been the year for safety improvements as they also brought in the side reflectors and indicators.

If anyone has a set of gold (Nugget or Lime) seatbelts, I could use a set for my convert project.
