When they did come in, we only wore them on long trips.  It wasn't until
they made it compulsory to wear them that we started wearing them all the


   It's possible that belts were available as an option but I never knew
anyone who had them until at least 5 years later.  My father was in the auto
insurance business and had us wearing seat belts long before most people
were aware of them so if they'd existed in 1962, I'd have been wearing one.

I started driving in 1965 and always had seat belts.  If  I remember
correctly, they came included in my 1972 Chevy, not an  option. It was just a
lap belt. I lived in NYC and they became  mandatory in the early eighties.
Although this was a law that was not  enforced unless you were in an accident
and reported not wearing belts. Then the  insurance companies could refuse
coverage because of the law  violation.

  My 1981 Firebird came with three point belts and every  car thereafter. My
1994 Intrepid came with belts and the first year to included  front driver and
passenger air bags. Only other car that came with them was  a luxury car.
Safety is always my first concern.

As I stated before my 1962 Olds conv I owned in 1965 did not  have seat
belts, so I had then installed.

I've NEVER driven a car without belts and to stay on topic, I  don't start
the Caddy or any other car until EVERYONE has there belts on.   I also fly
single engine airplanes and you wouldn't dare not wear a  belt.

So be safe and wear those belts. Especially if you want a ride  in the Caddy.

I remember front, mid-deck, and rear lap belts in our 9-passenger
1963 Dodge 330 station wagon. They pretty much got eaten in the
cracks between the seats and the seat backs -- which was par for most
seatbelt-equipped cars in that time period.
