Does anyone have a few pictures of what the correct dash mounted rear view mirror should look like , and how it was mounted. I have had a bunch of later 1800's but am new to the early ones. Also looking for how the seatbelts mount and how they buckle.

Thank you.

It appears there are two versions of dash-mounted P1800 mirrors...

...and this looks like the free-standing version...

Seat belts coming up...

Here is the Amazon seatbelt arrangement...

which shows the "lobster claw" and connections. The '67 P1800 is similar.

Used seatbelts are false security and current suppliers for classic Volvo parts will sell you new modern retractable seatbelts that attach at the original points.

Have not been able to find retractable seatbelts that don't require some welding and other modifications, if there are some that would be great .

Later 140/164 or 240 retractors are lumpy but can be fitted without welding in a 122. I'd think the 1800 should be pretty similar.

The challenge is that the 1800 coupes take really, really long belts, because the rear mounting point is way far back. 140/240 belts are too short.

I remember trying to fit an aftermarket set in one, but couldn't make it work using the original mounting points. I'm vague as to why right now, but there was no way to get the retractor to sit vertically, and it had to be vertical with that particular system. I ended up returning it.

I think rear 145 belts are quite a bit longer - don't know if they are enough longer. If you had good retractors you might put new webbing on them.
