I put in standard seat belts in my 56 Studebaker as well in 1964...after I read that it made no sense to have a car crumble up taking the hit only for us to THEN crash into the dash and windshield at that point.

And I too always buckled up...and It saved me a couple of times.

However, for the safety minded, I have sketches of what amounts to a full-body helmet with wheels and motor attached.
