Some guy wants to know what year did all cars start coming with seat belts installed.

He says 1962 and I say 1966.

I can't find a clear answer on the internet.

DOES ANYBODY KNOW?

Guess it depends on what you actually mean by the question. According to the Wikipedia article (actually a decent source for this kind of thing, when you think about it), Saab made the first car with seatbelts standard in 1958, and it became commonplace after that.

I use Wikipedia all the time, but I do wonder about the validity of content sometimes.

I work for a research organization and Wikipedia is not a citable source, but you can usually follow the footnotes to something useful.
