Be careful of old used seatbelts. I read an article a few years ago but can't find it now. What got my attention was that some early seat belts were sewn with cotton thread. Over the years the thread breaks down and looses strength. Often not visible. The article suggested to have them re-sewn using strong modern thread at an upholstery shop. I would not want my seatbelts break at the worst moment.
There are reproduction seat belts available now. Even with retractors. You might consider a set of those. Try a muscle car catalog such as OPGI, Classic industries or summit racing.

Old used webbing is unsafe. There are two companies in Texas that repair seat belts to like new. You just send the old belts and WAIT (they must both be busy as the both quoted my 4-8 WEEKS!). Not cheap, but the pony car and muscle car forums say good things about these companies.

You can buy the webbing and do it yourself - but you won't save much if you use the correct style webbing.

Juliano's has a big assortment of belts and related hardware. Although not factory-original, their selections include belts with satin-chrome GM buckles which look very classy. Many colors available for the webbing, too. I've purchased from them and I was satisfied. Here's a link to their website:

I have to check. I might have a set of the 68 specific blue seat belts up in the attic. The color is much lighter than the 69 color.
