Type 3 Inertia Reel Seat Belts and flasher lights

Guys and Gals,

I'm just reading a copy of an article which was in one of the newsletters from 
our National Type 3 Register (1994) relating to the '73 Type Fastback which 
now has a brother, The Basic Compact.  (According to the article a cut down 
version of the deluxe fastback) 

Extract as follows:
"VW's Type 3 cars come equipped with four-on-the-floor transmissions as 
standard equipment, with optional three-speed automatic shift for the sedan 
and Square-back.  Self-adjusting front disc brakes, flow-through ventilation, 
bucket seats and inertia-reel three-point seat belts."

(Are these guys big on hyphens or what!!)

Has anyone ever seen any of these so called "inertia-reel three-point seat 
belts?"  I can't say I have.  I even asked about them at one of the local 
shops months ago and was led to believe nothing like this existed.  Of course 
if anyone can shed some light, let's hear it.

Article also says:
"....The emergency 4-way flasher is permanently illuminated so it can be found 
quickly, even at night."

Isn't it great to know these things.  Does anyone have one of these cars.  On 
the Notch and Square I have, they don't light didley.  Only when they are on 
is there any light and that's in time with the outside indicators.  So how do 
you find them at night?  The old finger in the socket trick!

Anyone got any ideas, thoughts, etc.
