Hello,
It has been a while since selling my 38 Master Deluxe(couldn't take her on the freeway). I will be installing seat belts in my new to me 1960 Impala two door and had a couple of questions.
1. What logo would they have used in 1960: Bow Tie or GM?
2. What length should I get, they offer 60, 72 or 90".
I installed 72" in my 38 and they were too long.
Thank you,
Michael
PS My interior is not stock, redone in latter 80s, not sure if kits were available then
Engine built by Kenny Hamilton, father of Davey Hamilton(Indy racer)

First believe in 1960 the buckel was plain with no emblem and it was of the cam type not latch type. Also the came in one color, a blueish gray and only one belt was offered for front or back seats
For length I wold say 60 or 72 inch, doing a rough measurement while sitting in the seat woulld give best indication.
