Thanks

Is yours a conversion or did it come from the factory as a convertible? I didn't think Toyota made a convertible until 1985. Anyway, to answer your question, a three point belt isn't used in a convertible unless it has a rollbar. In a rollover, you want your body to be able to fold into the body, away from the collapsing roof. I'm not sure if that is law or simply design practice.

Your car must be a custom convertible; Toyota Celica RA65's were only factory made convertibles in 1985! Your VIN should start JT5RA65 instead of JT2RA65. If it doesn't say JT5, then you have a custom convertibe. If it does say JT5, then you have a 1985!
The downside to a custom convertible is if the customizer reinforced the body after cutting off the rigid roof. If he didn't, then you have a body that has been weakened by the removal of structural support (the roof) without any accompanying replacement.
A factory convertible is reinforced from the get go, it takes into account the lost support and compensates accordingly.

Old School Celicas forever!!!

You're absolutely right. In fact, it would be necessary to modify the car to have this kind of belt in the car.
