Hey all, I am in the process of finishing up my 64 coupe deville and noticed that the front seat belts only have the retractor side in the bag I put all the belts in when I got it. I have found it pretty difficult to find the correct belt latches and am in search of four or five sets. I would like to buy, in any condtion, four or five belt buckle and latch pairs with the Cadillac crest on them. I don't need anything but the buckle and latch pair, I am going to change the webbing on them anyway so they can be cut out. I have found that the 66 generation of buckles are the generic gm latch with the Cadillac crest on the button rather than the GM logo. The image shows the 66 belt buckle I already have..
Russ or one of the others may have seat belts but I am out and have 12 customers on my Wait List looking for this very sought after item. I can add you to my List if no one has one but the wait could indeed be a while. I will say that this is where being a Chapter Member has its advantages. Of those 12 on my Wait List, only 1 is a Chapter Member, that means join the Cadillac LaSalle Club (CLC) and then our free Chapter and you would then move immediately to #2 on my list jumping past regular customers that have been waiting since 2012.

I contacted Cadillac King in California and he said he has them, but he wants $97 each, which I see may be a reasonable price now that I have done some research. I honestly didn't realize how hard it would be to find them. I'm mad at myself because I had two of them and now can't find one of them. Someone out there probably has a big box of them that were never installed and just thinks they are junk.
welllllllll……. I was pleasantly surprised when I was uncovering my front seat to start tearing it down.....and.....I found the factory 1964 seat belts. In amazing condition. I feel like I won the lotto today. I am no longer looking for buckles. thanks to all that looked in on my post.
Good deal. Perhaps you have some rear seat belts pushed behind the seat. They had the same crested buckle and male tab insert.
Just Love you finding those seat belts hidden the way you did
