There were a couple years, and I think 1975 was one of them, that had a seatbelt/ starter interlock. The car will not start if the seatbelts are not fastened. It became legal, later on, to disable the system and buzzer. Open the hood and on the driver's side firewall look for a metal box with a button in the center of the metal box. Press the button and the car should start. As I recall it's a black button. Until you have the system bypassed you'll have to do this each time you want to start the car. HTH. -Jim
