Mom had some flavor of Buick wagon. The worst part was getting hollered at to put our belts on but we couldn't touch the things without getting burned.

My dad had a '68 Oldsmobile that had a roof stored front seat chest belt separate from the lap belt.   With the center belt one side had three buckles to deal with.  

We got yelled at to NOT touch the chest belt cause during storage the metal tongue would rattle on the chrome inside window trim and it being a "98" my dad couldn't easily reach over to fix it.

In reply to Datsun310Guy :

Interesting, we had a mid 60's Holden that was like that, metal buckles and all ...

We (NZ) generally referred to the two point belts as "lap" or "shoulder". Three point belts were often called "lap and diagonal ".

Did other countries use different names for these ?

No - I just couldn't recall the names you used - I failed but I clearly remember my pops yelling to leave the seat belts alone,
