Instead of the retractor, the early 67’s had a plastic boot which was attached to the mounting bolt.Later 67’s and all 68 & 69’s had front seat lap belts with retractors.The front seat lap buckle belts were mounted to the floor tunnel in the center of the car.

Later 67’s lacked these boots on the inboard belts.

68 & 69 cars used a larger plastic boot that covered the mounting hardware and the ends of both the shoulder and lap belts.

Front shoulder belts were optional on all convertibles and on all 1967 and early 1968 coupes (built prior to January 1968).

Effective January 1, 1968 , front shoulder belts were required for coupes (though still optional on convertibles) by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 208 and 209.

The optional 67 front shoulder belts had the buckle belt attached to the headliner and the clip belt attached to the inboard floor.

This was a low volume option and was a poor design which is described in more detail in the CRG 1967 Camaro front shoulder harness article.

A tag attached to the belt identifies the belt's usage, date of manufacture, and manufacturer.

Originally, the 1967 Camaro was labeled as a 5-passenger vehicle and 2 sets of front lap belts and 3 sets of rear seat lap belts were installed.

All 1967-1969 US- and Canadian-sold Camaros were equipped with seat belts.
