We spend a lot of time planning and working on our pickups with the intention of ending up with good looking high-performance classics. Lots of time and energy is expended choosing mechanical components, dress up items, paint colors, and so on, but too many times a good set of seatbelts end up being an afterthought. Along with good looks and wow-factor, safety should be up there near the top of our overall rodstoration plans since our pickups are more than likely destined to carry friends, spouses, and even our children or grandchildren. Bob Juliano of Juliano’s Hot Rod Parts has for years been a believer in the safety-first school of hot rod building. In fact, his extremely successful business has been built around the safety-first focus he wholeheartedly espouses to this day.

The following shows just how easy it is to install a set of three-point seatbelts in a classic pickup, in this case a Tri-Five Chevy. It’s a task that can be accomplished in a short amount of time yet, it’s an extremely important facet of any build, be it a hot rod, classic truck, or muscle car. CT
