As I'm thinking about this and typing it, I realize that it is a little silly to be perfectly willing to drive a car with really old seatbelts and not think of it ('73 Beetle and '78 Bus), but I'd be nervous buying seatbelts out of a car in a wrecking yard.

I am very sure that even the rabbits that had the door seatbelts have all the mountings for 3-point belts.  I would be inclined to buy a set of universal belts that would fit that mounting.  It would be pretty easy.
