Need some help from older guys

I had a court case thrown in my lap this afternoon. It is going to be in court at 9:30am tomorrow.

There was a serious auto accident (2012) between a police car and a 1985 Ford F150. I cannot locate one in the time I have to prepare, which means it will be a long night.

I need to know:

Did a 1985 Ford F-150 :

Have lap / shoulder harness.

Have a plastic or metal under dash around the steering wheel column.

If it had a plastic dash, was it a covering or just flexible plastic?

If anyone here can answer, I would appreciate it. I called the Ford dealership and none there could even recall a 1985 Ford. Admittedly, if one is 45 now, they were only 15 when the truck was new.

Even the owner / driver of the truck could not recall the answers to these questions.

Thanks

Under the steering column it was plastic as was the dash....

The Captain doesn't shop during the slow winter months at the j.o.b.

He keeps the nest egg that he built in the summer months for those cold weeks when he doesn't get 40 hours....

He won't transfer savings to checking unless it's an emergency....{like a new gun}....hehehe.......jk
