Can you replace lap belts on a 1976 Corvette with shoulder belts?

Yes you can. I purchased a rebuilt set from Davie's corvettes parts and accessories in 2004. They cost me about $400.00. The old pullies are removed from under the seats and from behind the shoulders of the driver and passenger seats. The car will have manufactured holes in the body to insert the bolts through. Good luck Correct. They're available from almost any Corvette specialty supplier, not just Davie's. I would NOT recommend a used set, EVER, since you really don't know exactly what kind of shape the mechanisms are in. -ku2002 1976 Corvettes came from the factory with shoulder belts, FYI. Anyhow your old ones can be restored to factory new condition by a company called SSnake Oyl. --Dave.

Yes, the '76 came standard from the factory with shoulder/lap belt combo. Top part bolts into pillar and bottom bolts in right by the seat mount. Good luck! -ku2002 Yes, 1976 Corvettes did not come with lap belts only. They were equipped from the factory with shoulder belts. (Or the shoulder/lap combo) mentioned above. But it wasn't an either/or deal. Plain lap belts were never installed in 1976 Corvettes.

my 1976 corvette is supped up and she will run a solid 165 it will probably do more but i dident want to push it cause the nose was coming off the ground

The hood for a 1976 Corvette is not the same dimensions as a 1980 despite their similarities. Modifications can be made to the hood to make it work but it will not look factory.

the nova never had a serpentine belt in 1976, it had 2 belts on it unless it had air conditioning and then it had 3 belts.

NO. Do not attempt to do so, as the bumper will be extremely unstable.

ANSWER: Well, go buy a new one, paint it to match the color of the car, unbolt the old one and bolt the new one in. There.

Put a jack under the engine for stability. Unbolt one motor mount, and jack the engine up slightly. The mount should be able to be removed, replace it and repeat for the other side.

Approx 3445, options vary weight

Yes, the same frame and basic underpinnings were used for that whole generation. The C3 (1968-1982).

maybe you can unbolt the universal joint and then slide it out of the spline

it should as 76 corvettes had no horsepower whatsoever.
