W115 Seatbelt issue

Hi all

I'm in a bit of a fix with the local car authorities. I currently have 2-point seatbelts in my W115 (one near the shoulder, the other in the middle of the bench seat). They are saying that I can fix a 3-point seat belt in my W115 and consequently refused to let me renew my license until I change it.

My mechanic though is saying there is no where to bolt the third point (somewhere under the shoulder). Can anyone confirm which of the two is right?


Edit: Mine is the 1970 200D model. I found an article that states that Mercedes implemented 3-point seatbelts in 1973. That would still be within the production time of the W115. But do the earlier W115's have the connection points?

Personally, I would trust the mechanic over a bureaucrat. What state?
