Default 1971 Seat Belt Retractor

Looking for a 1971 seat belt retractors in red color, and other seat belt hardware. Let me know if you have any you can sell, or if you know where I can get it at a good price. Thank you.

Are you looking for shoulder belts or seat belts? Seat belts in 1971 did not have a retractor--shoulder belts did.

Just need the correct seat belts for a 71. I believe they have a retractor that goes behind the seat, not sure what goes on the front. I am missing about everything on that.

They do not have a retractor behind or under the seat. They have no retractor. The portion closest to the console on each side would have a red plastic sleeve, but no retractor.

I thought the piece that goes behind the seat was called retractor. I basically need everything on that respect, my car doesn't have seat belts at all. The part that goes behind the seat, or the part that goes next to the seat, both are missing. I am changing the color to red so I need everything. Like to find some used ones if possible, an aftermarket set is going to cost $300 or more and won't be original.

The retractor behind the seat is the shoulder belt

This is what a complete set for your 71 would look like but in red:
